The M61 northbound has been closed this morning after a lorry crashed and caught fire.
Fuel was also spilled on the road, and traffic is queuing all the way back to junction 4 at Farnworth.
The road reopened at about 6.30am, but one lane is still closed on the southbound carriageway of the M61.
Traffic was diverted via the A6 Chorley/Manchester Road.
