The road had seen heavy traffic and hold-ups earlier in the day, some queues stretching back down both the M6 and M61 due to Bank Holiday weekend.

But just as delays seemed to have eased the smash, between Junction 31|A for Preston East and Longridge and Junction 32 at Broughton, brought further trouble for motorists.

It is not known if anyone has been hurt in the collision.
