Recap: M6 gridlock as fireball truck carrying tinned fish recovered
Motorists faced long delays on the M6 this morning after a truck carrying tinned fish caught fire.
Firefighters were called out to the blaze on the southbound carriageway between Junctions 16 for Barthomley and 15 for Hanchurch at around 1.30am this morning.
As reported by StokeonTrentLive earlier this morning the motorway was shut off while the incident was dealt with.
Recovery then took place with miles of delays as just one lane past the scene was open. Several miles of traffic was recorded during the height of the congestion while nearby roads were also busy as drivers headed off the motorway.
