A lane has been closed on the M61 northbound due to debris on the carriageway.
Highways closed one lane (of two) on the M61 northbound exit slip at junction 9 (Blackburn, Burnley, Preston South, M65) at around 8.45am (January 8).
Highways are on site to remove the debris, which is understood to have fallen from a truck leaving the motorway at Walton Summit.
The lane closure has led to delays for traffic leaving the M61 and joining the M65 at junction 2.
The agency said it expects the incident to be cleared by 9.20am.
