Heavy traffic blighted M56 users making their way home at the end of the working week, but has now cleared.

Congestion caused delays eastbound between the A494 and junction 12 at Runcorn during Friday rush hour (October 30).

No incidents have been reported.

Similar problems hit commuters more than once already this week.

The slip road at junction 12 remains closed.

Traffic has also eased on the A5117 eastbound and on the A51 at the Vicars Cross roundabout.
