The M6 is currently closed in both directions following a collision involving a HGV which has hit the central reservation.
It occurred at 11.58am on the southbound carriageway between junctions 20, Lymm interchange, and 19, Knutsford.
A quantity of fuel has split onto the road and as a result the carriageway is 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.
