A CRASH on the M6 southbound near Knutsford Services is causing delays.

Drivers are warned that the southbound entry slip is partially blocked due to an accident.

Highways England says traffic is coping well but there is some congestion between junction 19 at Tabley and junction 18 for Middlewich.

A jackknifed lorry further south heading towards Stock-on-Trent is causing long delays.

The lorry has damaged a bridge and is presently blocking one lane.

Recovery is on the way.
