Lengthy delays on M6 after lorry crash causes fuel spillage


A lorry crashed through the central reservation of the M6 near the Lymm interchange, bursting its fuel tank, causing lengthy delays.

The incident occurred at 11.58am on the southbound carriageway between junctions 20, Lymm interchange, and 19, Knutsford.

A quantity of fuel spilt onto the road and as a result the carriageway was closed in both directions. There are no reports of any injuries.

Local diversions are in place and motorists are advised to avoid the area. At this stage we do not know how long it will be closed for, but will update when possible.

Updated 15.45 A second lane on the M6 southbound has been reopened. Traffic is beginning to build on the M6 and we would urge people to find alternative routes.
One lane has reopened northbound and southbound of the M6. Traffic is flowing well. We are currently awaiting an engineer to assess the damage to the central reservation.
