The A55 junction 40 is closed in both directions meaning many drivers will be forced to find a different way home

Pictures show the concrete has poured out from the roof blocking the A51 route into Chester, which remains closed.

Problems could persist through the afternoon and into the evening as the HGV and the debris will have to be recovered.
