THE M6 is fully reopen northbound following a serious accident this morning, Thursday.

All lanes were closed following the multi-vehicle crash near to junction 24 at Ashton at around 7am.

Queues stretched back more than 10 miles at the worst point to Woolston.

One of the vehicles, a lorry, hit a bridge support and one lane was closed until 12.35 pm for bridge support inspection and repairs.
