SOUTHBOUND lanes on the M6 are now fully open following a closure due to a jack-knifed car and caravan.

The caravan overturned on the motorway just beyond Burton-in-Kendal services at 10.50am today (April 11).

Traffic was backed up on the M6 all the way to J36/A590 (Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale).

The road is fully open now but there is still some congestion due to the busy holiday traffic and the contraflow in place at Tebay.
