M55 closed after pile up

The M55 carriageway heading out of Blackpool has been closed following a pile-up.

The crash happened at junction 3 near Kirkham at around 4.30pm.

Eyewitnesses report the incident happening on the Eastbound slip road at Junction 3.

The Air Ambulance landed close to the scene at Fleetwood Road, but there are no details of injuries at this stage.

Police then closed the motorway at Junction 4 Marton Circle meaning traffic exiting Preston New Road couldn't join the M55.

The closure is having a knock on effect on local roads both around Kirkham and Marton.
