The M606 is closed in both directions between the exit and entry slip roads at junction 3 due to flooding.

A diversion is taking drivers off and then back on the motorway at the junction and the road is likely to remain closed during the evening rush hour.

Highways England contractors are currently on-site and are working to clear the flood water from the carriageway.

Drivers using this section of the M606 have been advised to plan their journeys and allow some extra time to reach their destinations.
