A major road in Lancashire has been partially closed as fire-fighters deal with a grass fire next to the carriageway.
The county's fire service has six engines at the scene just off the A56 at Rising Bridge.
The southbound carriageway from junction 8 of the M65 has been closed as a precaution.
Drivers in the North West are being promised over 100 miles of extra lanes on the region's motorways to tackle congestion and improve journey times.
Highways England is announcing details on four new smart motorway schemes, worth around £500 million, which are due to start construction work within the next 18 months.
Contractors will begin work on the first one later this summer - on a 9-mile-stretch of the M62 which links the M6 near Warrington to the M60 near Eccles.

Manchester Airport has confirmed a new system to tackle congestion on its campus will go live on July 10th.
In March it announced it was creating a dedicated drop-off site from where passengers will be able to board a free shuttle service to their terminal.
The airport hopes the move will help ease growing levels of congestion.
Those passengers still wanting to be dropped off directly outside the terminals will have to pay a £3 fee for five minutes or £4 for 10.
For those collecting passengers at car parks outside each terminal there will be a cost of £4 for 30 minutes.
The drop-off site is located at the current Jetparks 1 site, near to Terminal 2.
Northern Rail is running trains on the Lakes Line for the first time in nearly a month.
A limited number of shuttle services have resumed on the Lakes Line, which runs trains between Oxenholme and Windermere.
All trains were stopped last month due to timetable changes and staffing issues. This led to a number of delays and cancellations.
There will be replacement buses to cover staff breaks.
Northern Rail has not yet said when services will return to a normal timetable.
Manchester Airport is celebrating its 80th birthday in style.
The former Ringway Airport began life in 1938 as just a solitary hangar in a field in South Manchester.
Now it is the UK's third biggest airport and a brand known across the world.
People using the Metrolink in Greater Manchester are to be offered free travel today to mark Clean Air Day.
The idea is to encourage people to help improve the quality of air and reduce pollution in the city region.
Transport for Greater Manchester, who operate the service, say it is part of a drive to encourage people to think about changing travel habits to improve air quality.
The company is also encouraging employers to consider flexible working hours for their staff so that they can take advantage of the free travel offer.
The offer applies for anyone using the service before 7 am or after 7 pm
It's great to see Metrolink get on board the Clean Air Day campaign with this free travel offer.
Short of cycling and walking, there's no greener way to travel around Greater Manchester than by tram.
We breathe in polluted air every day and we all need to take action to help change things. If everyone makes a small change it will add up to a very big difference for local air quality.
I encourage drivers to take up this free travel offer on Clean Air Day to see if tram-travel is something that could work for them.
