Major tailbacks have hit the M61 motorway after a lorry fire this morning.

Fire fighters are still tackling the remains of a lorry fire on the M61 Southbound and commuters are set for further congestion woes.

One lane is currently closed between junction six, Horwich and junction eight, Chorley on the busy stretch of motorway and the Highways Agency have warned drivers to expect 40 minute delays up until 6pm tonight.
