Motorway police were shocked to discover a family making unusual use of the hard shoulder on the M6 near Lancaster on Sunday.

The family, on holiday from France, decided to stop for a barbecue – until they were advised to move on by officers for their own safety.

The incident happened just after 3pm on Sunday.

North West Motorway Police later tweeted: “Remember the hard shoulder is for emergencies and not delicacies”.
