Traffic was held on the M6 to deal with the crash

Traffic has been held and delays remain after two cars crashed on the M6 near Preston.

Motorists on the northbound carriageway were held by police near junction 32 at 1.30pm, with traffic stationary for around 20 minutes.

The police roadblock has since been lifted, with one lane still closed while recovery takes place.

“Lane three (of three) remains closed after traffic was held between 13:30 and 13:50.”
