Traffic delays

A BUSY road in Rainhill had to be closed for several hours following a car fire.

The A570 at junction 7 of the M62 (Rainhill Stoops) was shut as firefighters tacked the blaze.

Traffic had to be diverted via other routes into the town centre.

However, there were some delays along from the A57 as well as Jubitts Lane following the incident on December 23.
