Lancaster Police issue motorway weather warning

John Freeman
Lancaster Police are warning motorists to slow down and drive to the conditions as freezing weather has caused a number of accidents on the M6 motorway.

"We are experiencing difficulties on the M6 between Junction 33 and junction 36 on both carriageways," they say. "This morning we have attended 10 damage only road traffic collisions. This is because of the weather conditions. Gritters are out in force."

It is raining and the rain is turning into ice, however motorists still insist on driving to fast and not to the conditions.

Police advice to motorists is

• Slow down and drive to the conditions
• Only travel if you need to
• Beware of the ice on the road
