Two crashes have caused tailbacks on the M6 this morning.

Emergency crews are currently working to clear debris from the road after a crash on the M6 near junction 31 at Preston.

The minor crash took place early this morning but traffic was still backing up around 10am.

Further south in Cheshire lanes were blocked northbound around junction 16 after another crash.

Emergency crews are at the scene but nobody is thought to have been seriously injured.
