The motorway was closed for nearly an hour after the car caught fire having collided with a lorry and a van shortly before 4.30pm on the Southbound carriageway near Standish.

Police and fire attended although nobody was hurt in the incident. The road was closed until 5.30pm while police removed oil and debris.
