M55 delays as police shut motorway after vehicle overturns in crash
The M55 eastbound has reopened after a crash involving an overturned vehicle this morning (Tuesday, June 22).
All lanes have since reopened but there are residual delays due to the tailbacks from the earlier closure.
The eastbound carriageway was shut from 8.45am between junctions 3 (Kirkham, A585 Fleetwood Road) and 1 (Preston) whilst police and ambulance crews worked at the scene.
Highways England warned of delays of around 50 minutes sand said the incident was expected to be cleared by 9.45am.
