Just been to Burleydam, took half an hour to drive the usual 5 minute drive, coming back its absolute murder around Hooton/Willaston/Ellesmere Port. A lorry has gone over on the M53.

Went back via the M53 S from J5, tailbacks for miles, took 5 minutes to go up the sliproad, took another 20 minutes to get past the tailback, got free at just past J6, avoided J7 like the plague and came off at J9. The tailbacks on the Northbound were well past J9, couldnt see how far they went back so I assume they are hitting J10 at least.

Avoid these routes if you are on you're way out. Will get me photos up in a sec.

Jeeze so its bin like this all day omg

Absolute murder locally, as you say, the northbound carriageway is completely shut off from J7 onwards, the southbound is down to 1 lane from J5 to J6 (just passed the crash area) madness!

1hr30 to get from Warrington, I can easily believe that matey; mind you it takes Pomp that long on a good day grin

Yes, unfortunatly! We had just bought a load more tropical fish and needed to get home within a certain timeframe. Fortunatly though, passed the crashsite at J6, the southbound is quite free flowing.

Part of the M53 motorway has been closed after a lorry jack-knifed, hitting another lorry and a car. The crash happened on the northbound carriageway between junctions seven at Ellesmere Port and five at Hooton.

The Highways Agency said one of the lorries was carrying scrap metal, some of which has spilled onto the carriageway. An empty oil tanker was also struck in the incident, which happened at about 1100 BST on Thursday.

The car driver was taken to hospital to be treated for minor injuries and shock. The motorway remains closed between junctions six and seven.

Drivers are being advised to avoid the area if possible until further notice. The outside southbound lane was also shut for a time but has since re-opened.

A police investigation into the incident has opened.

At least the car driver is safe, doesn't mention either lorry driver though frown
