Commuters should expect delays after a crash has closed one lane of a major route.

The northbound carriageway of the M61 from junction three towards junction four is down to two lanes after a crash. 

The lane closure comes after a previous crash was cleared from the southbound carriageway from junction three towards junction two for Kearsley. 



Officers are on scene but motorists are advised to leave extra time for their journey or find an alternative route.
