A SLIP road was closed at Simister Island this morning, Sunday, after an accident which left car facing the wrong way.

The M60 anticlockwise slip road was shut as emergency services work at the scene following the incident which led to the vehicle facing the wrong way in lane one of two.

It has not been reported if there were other vehicles involved in the incident.

Highways England warned motorists to "please take extra care if this is part of your route."

But the department has said the car has been recovered and the road is now clear.
