ALL lanes are now open on the M6 and traffic is back to normal after an earlier crash caused delays of more than two hours.

Two lanes of the northbound carriageway were blocked in the roadworks area this morning between junction 18 for Middlewich and Holmes Chapel and junction 19 for Knutsford, after a crash involving three lorries, which happened shortly before 8am today. 

Lanes two and three were blocked half a mile before junction 19, leaving around 10 miles of queuing traffic.

At its worst, traffic was queuing for more than two hours. 

All lanes have now been reopened.
