A MOTORWAY is closed following a “serious” crash.

The M6 northbound is currently closed in Cheshire after several vehicles were involved in a crash on Monday morning (December 11).

Cheshire Police were called to the scene, near Thelwall Viaduct, at 7.48am, where they were joined by fire and ambulance service personnel.

Upon arrival they found two HGVs, a white Ford Zetec and a white Ford Kuga had been involved.

One person suffered a “serious chest injury” as a result of the crash, police say, and they have since been taken to hospital via air ambulance.

The road had to be closed in both directions to allow the helicopter to land.

The southbound carriageway then reopened at 9.10am.

However, as of 9.45am, the northbound carriageway remains closed.

A number of other people have also been taken to hospital by paramedics.

Anyone with information or video footage is urged to contact Cheshire Police by calling 101 or visiting www.cheshire.police.uk/tell-us, quoting IML 1710646.
