There are chaotic scenes on the M65 again this lunchtime after a car crashed into the central reservation.

A blue Peugoet 206 crashed into the central reservation westbound close to junction 11 at Burnley just before 1pm.

Paramedics raced to the scene and treated the driver, a woman in her 50s, for arm injuries.

Traffic started to back up on the motorway and reports were made of a three vehicle crash shortly before this incident.

The spokesman advised drivers to slow down on the approach to this section of the motorway.
