The M61 is facing delays after sheep were found straying onto the carriageway.

Traffic was held between 8:50am and 9:10am this morning southbound on junction 8 for Chorley, while the sheep were located back to their field.

Drivers took to twitter to voice their concerns to Lancashire Police, after one commuter reported that they were at a standstill.

All lanes have been re-opened, however there is still some traffic in the surrounding area.
