A DRIVER and passenger had a lucky escape when their Land Rover suffered a blow-out on the motorway at Wigan.

The vehicle, which was towing an empty animal trailer, jack-knifed in heavy traffic on the northbound M6 at Orrell leaving two Lancashire Wildlife Trust staff stranded on the central reservation.

They were later rescued and escaped unhurt.
