The hard shoulder of the motorway is now clear, and the buildup of traffic is in the process of being cleared via the hard shoulder.

Vehicles south of J41 are being diverted off at the junction, travelling up the A6, and re-joining the M6 at J42.

The M6 northbound is not expected to be re-opened for at least a couple of hours. Drivers are still advised to avoid the area and use diversions.
