Heavy traffic was building up on Lancashire motorways tonight as the half term break was nearing an end.

There were delays on the M6 and M61 northbound between Chorley and Preston.

But with no incident reported, it was thought to be just volume of traffic.

One of the major congestion points was the M61 and M6 junction near Preston.

At 4pm, traffic was down to 15mph with delays.
