A broken-down vehicle near junction 14 of the M56 caused slow traffic this Friday rush-hour (October 23).

One lane near Hapsford was closed while the incident was dealt with and traffic returned to normal around 6pm.

The motorway saw drama on Tuesday when an overturned tanker gushed fuel on to the carriageway, which led to a full closure between junctions 14 and 12 for more than 12 hours.
