Recap: Hermes lorry broken down on M6 could result in late deliveries

There was traffic building on the M6 due to a broken down lorry. Highways England closed one lane on the southbound carriageway between junction 19 for the A556 to Knutsford and junction 18 for the A54 to Middlewich and Holmes Chapel. Traffic officers attended the scene to attempt to move the lorry to help ease congestion.

However, they warned motorists to drive carefully past the scene due to the size of the stranded vehicle. The Hermes truck was moved to the hard shoulder allowing traffic to flow and normal conditions to resume.
