Drivers making their way to Burnley on the M65 this morning faced lengthy delays.

A broken down lorry on the A56 near Rising Bridge caused long tailbacks along the eastbound carriageway between junctions 8 and 10.

Matrix signs were set to 50 mph and roadworks between junctions 9 and 10 saw one lane closed which added to the delays.
