Shocking images released after motorhome overturns on M6 between Preston and Lancaster
All lanes on the M6 northbound were closed after a campervan overturned following a crash between Preston and Lancaster.
All traffic was stopped on the M6 northbound between junctions 33 (Hampson Green Interchange) and 34 (Halton Interchange) following a crash at around 1.30pm today (October 21).
The crash, which caused a motorhome to overturn, reportedly caused around three miles of congestion and heavy traffic on the A6 towards Lancaster.
Officers have now confirmed the occupants of the vehicle, including their dog, escaped the incident unharmed.
A spokesman for Lancashire Police said: "Occupants thankfully OK including their dog. The motorway was closed northbound owing to diesel spill.
"Thanks to police, fire, ambulance, highways and Macadams for their help. Also thanks to drivers who stopped to help."
The carriageway reopened shortly before 4pm after a diesel spill was cleaned by motorway crews, and traffic has now returned to normal.
