TRAFFIC lights on the busy Rainhill Stoops roundabout were out of action on Monday morning - causing long delays for motorists.

Traffic stretched back the west-bound M62 shortly before 9am.

Lights on the Widnes side of the round were affected.

A council spokesman said: “This was caused by a power outage.

“The traffic lights were out but Scottish Power engineers managed to fix the fault.”
