Police said there were two road traffic collisions yesterday evening between junctions 33 and 34 on the M6 within a short time of one another which stopped traffic.

When patrols and National Highways were preparing to lift the closure, an HGV collided with a pedestrian in the carriageway just after junction 33 – thankfully at low speed.

It is not known why the pedestrian was there, whether he had got out of a stationary vehicle.

He suffered a leg injury and was taken to hospital for treatment.
