and live on Freeview channel 276
Lanes were closed after a crash on the southbound carriageway near junction 31 (A59 Preston New Road / Samlesbury) at around 7am.
Traffic was temporarily held while emergency services attended the scene and the damaged vehicles were moved onto the hard shoudler.
All lanes have since reopened but the closures have led to congestion on the motorway between junction 32 and the M61 / M65 interchange at Walton Summit.
Traffic is also slow on the northern carriageway.
National Highways said there are currently delays of around 15 minutes for those travelling towards the scene of the crash. Normal traffic conditions are expected to resume by around 9.45am.
It is not known whether anyone was injured in the crash at this stage.
Lancashire Police and North West Ambulance Service have been approached for comment.
