TWO lanes on the M6 northbound are set to remain closed for at least the rest of the week for bridge repairs.

The repairs are being carried out on a railway bridge between junction 17 for Sandbach and junction 18 for Middlewich and Holmes Chapel.

The bridge was stuck by a HGV during a serious collision on Tuesday morning.

Sadly, the driver of the HGV, a man in his 60s died.

Drivers are being warned that the lane closures are causing delays and this should be planned into journey times.
