UPDATED: M6 closed after overturned lorry sheds tonnes of frozen lasagne
2:11pm Friday 20th September 2013 in News
THE M6 at junction 39 will be closed to southbound traffic from 2.15pm today to assist the recovery operation following a road traffic collision this morning.
Motorists are being asked to look for alternative routes as it is expected that this will take up to an hour.
All three lanes on the southbound section of the motorway, between junctions 39 and 38, were initially closed following the accident at 2am, in which a lorry shed its load of 40 tonnes of frozen lasagne and shepherd's pie.
The driver - who police have confirmed was 73 rather than 50, as stated earlier - was taken to Cumberland Infirmary with injuries not believed to be life threatening.
