Huge delays after livestock trailer carrying Highland Cows overturns on motorway

The M6 southbound was at a standstill between junctions 32 and 31a for Longridge, while police attempt to move the livestock into a new trailer.

 

A spokesperson for Highways England said: "The M6 in Lancashire is experiencing long delays southbound between J33 and J31A due to an incident involving a car and an overturned trailer carrying livestock between J32 and J31A. A specialist recovery crew are en-route to the scene.

 

"Road users may wish to consider alternative routes and are advised to allow extra time for their journey."

 

Police say frustrated drivers hurled abuse at traffic officers as they passed the scene.

A spokesman tweeted: "The trailer on its side still contains [animals] which are a bit tricky to deal with.

 

"Spare trailer is here now, we are working as quick as we can. If passing motorists could stop sounding their horn and swearing at us that’d be great."

 

No-one was injured in the incident - and all the animals were unharmed.
