MOTORISTS experienced major delays this morning after a lane was closed on the motorway.

A lorry was forced to pull over on the hard shoulder after its brakes overheated on the M6 between junction 26 and 25 southbound at 8.30am.

As firefighters cooled the vehicle down, one lane was blocked off, causing long delays, spreading to junction 27.

The lane was reopened a short while later.
