Fire fighters were called to a car fire on the M61 motorway this afternoon.

The incident happened between junction 8, Chorley and junction 9, Clayton Brook at around 1.47pm.

A spokesman for the fire service said: “The fire service were called to a small vehicle fire on the M61 just before the Botany Bay junction.

“However when they got there it was not much of a fire, it seems like there might have been a bit of smoke, possibly from overheating.”
