WIGAN commuters faced tail-backs after an articulated lorry broke down close to a busy industrial estate.

The driver of the vehicle was attempting a turn onto the Martland Mill estate and ended up blocking the carriageway on Scot Lane at around 7.30am on Thursday.

The lorry was moved onto Walthew House Lane

This caused delays around the busy Beech Hill Avenue junction with Woodhouse Drive to the north and towards Robin Park Road to the south.

By 8.15am the lorry had been moved onto Walthew House Lane to ease the congestion.
