Police have reopened a lane on the M6 between Preston and Lancaster after a lorry burst its tyre.
Traffic officers shut lane 1 of the M6 southbound between junctions 33 (Hampson Green) and 32 (Broughton) to assist an engineer changing a lorry tyre on the hard shoulder at 7.45am.
The lane closure caused minor delays to rush hour commuters, but traffic continued to move freely.
Highways England said normal traffic conditions returned at around 9am. All lanes are now open.
