A family had to be reminded that a motorway hard shoulder is for 'emergencies not delicacies' after they decided to have a barbecue at the side of the M6.

Highways were called this afternoon to the hard shoulder of the motorway at Lancaster.

A North West Motorway police spokesman said: "Highways have just attended at an incident where a French family were having a barbecue on the hard shoulder of the M6 at Lancaster. Remember the hard shoulder is for emergencies and not delicacies."
