Police attend scene of serious collision M56 near Chester
Cheshire Police and other emergency services are currently responding to an incident reported on the M56 motorway near Chester just before 2pm this afternoon.
Officers attended the scene where a HGV overturned on the westbound carriageway of the M56.
The driver of the HGV is being treated by paramedics.
The M56 westbound carriageway is closed between junction 12 (Runcorn) and junction 14 (Hapsford). The collision has also impacted traffic on the eastbound carriageway. Motorists are strongly advised to avoid the area and seek alternative routes, similarly the impact of the collision on the arterial routes around Chester and Ellesmere Port ( including A56 and A5117) is likely to cause congestion as rush hour approaches.
Any witnesses to the collision are advised to contact Cheshire Police on 101.
