The closure followed the incident at the start of the northbound exit slip road at junction 2 of the motorway just after 9.30am today.

The motorway was closed between junction 2 and junction 1 at Tarbock Island interchange where it meets junction 6 of the M62 and the A5300 local road (Knowsley Expressway).

All the closures were lifted at around 1pm after a police incident investigation was completed.
