Part of the southbound M6 has now reopened following a closure after a lorry fell on its side.

The section, between J26 Orrell Interchange (M58) and J23 Haydock Island (A580), in Greater Manchester was shut for around 13 hours.

It is thought the lorry left the carriageway and come to rest in the nearside verge between J24 (St Helens) and J23 in the early hours of 15 April.
