EXPECT long delays on the motorways tonight as two crashes have caused traffic chaos.

Two lanes were shut on the M62 westbound between junction 12 for the Eccles Interchange and junction 11 at Birchwood following a crash.

All lanes have now been reopened but there is congestion in the area

There is also very slow traffic and one lane was closed due to an accident on the M6 northbound between junction 20 A50 / B5158 for the Lymm Interchange and junction 21 A57 / B5210 for Woolston.

All those lanes were reopened at 5.30pm.
