Police have closed a stretch of M6 between Preston and Lancaster after a lorry pulled onto the hard shoulder with a damaged tyre.

Slight delays are expected after lane 1 was closed between junctions 32 (Preston) and 33 (Galgate) to allow a tyre fitter to safely change the offside tyre on a lorry.

Highways England expect the lane closure to remain in place until around 9.45am.

Twenty miles north, between junctions 34 (Lancaster) and 35 (Carnforth, Morecambe), another vehicle has been forced to pull up to repair an offside tyre on a van.
