The collision between a white Ford Transit and a white Nissan Juke caused major tailbacks on a road which is extremely busy with traffic heading into Wigan at that time.

Social media reports said queues stretched back to the S-bends with traffic coming from Shevington.

There were no injuries and the road was clear by 9.50am.
