Accident at M65 junction causes sliproad closure
1:57pm Monday 7th October 2013 in News
AN over-turned lorry has caused chaos at a busy motorway junction.
The accident happened at noon on the A56 sliproad off Junction Eight of the M65.
A large fuel spillage and the vehicle caussing an obstruction forced the closure of the southbound sliproad, for traffic getting on to the A56.
It is not expected to reopen for several hours while work to clear the area takes place, police said.
Nobody was injured in the accident, which has caused significant tailbacks on the motorway.
