A LANE closure on the M62 is causing long delays this evening, Thursday.

A broken down lorry on westbound carriageway from junction 8 at Burtonwood to junction 7 for Rainhill Stoops is causing congestion to junction 10 at the M6 Croft interchange.

This is also affecting traffic on the M6 trying to join the M62. Lane one of three was closed but reopened at around 4.30pm
