Long tailbacks on the M55 Westbound are to be expected this afternoon.
Reports began spreading on social media earlier this afternoon to avoid the M55 after a crash happened at around 2pm.
Emergency Services say one lane on the motorway is blocked between Broughton and Kirkham with traffic queuing back to the M6 J 31a/M55 J 1.
There are reports of two separate crashes. One near Barton around 1.30pm and another slightly later in Broughton near the slip road heading westbound.
It’s not currently known how many vehicles were involved in any crashes or if there are any injuries.
