Motorists are being warned about delays on the M6 motorway this evening.
Highways England said congestion has built up on both carriageways and there are currently delays of around 15 minutes in the Lancashire area.
Traffic has built up northbound and southbound between J28 for Leyland and J33 for Galgate.
This follows on from heavier congestion this afternoon after a vehicle broke down on the northbound exit slip road at J28 , causing lane closures.
This incident is now clear.
