The motorway was closed in both directions between Junction 13 and Junction 14, while officers carried out an investigation. It had initially been reported as a “police incident”.

The eastbound carriageway reopened shortly after 9am, with drivers sharing their experiences of the motorway chaos over Twitter.

One user wrote: “M65 closed in both directions between Nelson and Colne, is making for a very busy rush hour. #TafficChaos [sic]”

And another user said: “Huge traffic jam at the Nelson end of the M65. #traffictweet!”
