Motorists are facing delays on the M60 after a lorry has become stranded on the carriageway.

One lane and the hard shoulder have been closed clockwise between junction 15 at Worsley and junction 16 at Kearsley.

This is to allow for a fitter to safely change an offside tyre on lorry, Highways England has said.

Traffic officers and recovery teams are also currently on the scene.

The issue is causing traffic to slow as far back as junction 12 and disruption is expected to last until 4.30pm.
