Commuters heading away from Chester are facing delays due to two incidents on the motorway network this Monday evening (September 5).

One lane of the M56 is blocked eastbound between the A5117 and junction 15 for the M53 due to a car bumper, causing significant disruption.

While a broken-down lorry is to blame for very slow and heavy traffic on the M53 southbound between junction 11 for the M56 and junction 12 for the A55.

Traffic is queuing at the Vicars Cross Interchange.
