Three lanes are currently closed as a result of the crash. There are severe delays on the eastbound carriageway between junction 21 (Milnrow) and junction 22 (Rishworth Moor), with queues back to junction 19 (Heywood).

It’s thought the driver of one of the lorries is trapped in the vehicle and an air ambulance, along with police and the fire service, are currently at the scene.

A spokesperson for Highways England said normal traffic conditions are expected between 9.30am and 9.45am.
