Drivers have been experiencing delays on the M6 this morning after lanes 1 and 2 of the northbound carriageway were closed when a lampost fell over.

The lampost fell at around 10am between junctions 31a and 32 of the M6 at Preston, blocking two carriageways and causing tailbacks.

No-one was hurt and the Highways Agency were on the scene and moved the lampost off the road.

An investigation has now been launched.
