COMMUTERS travelling southbound from Wigan on the M6 are facing long delays following a diesel spill.

The delays, which are affecting the southbound carriageway from junction 26 Orrell to junction 20, have been caused after a collision at around 7am closed one lane of the link road between the M6 and M56.

The lane has now been reopened but Highways England warned that the delays will take time to clear.
