Man injured following M6 lorry crash

Firefighters have given first aid to a man from one of two lorries involved in a crash on the M6 in Cheshire.

Emergency services, including fire engines from Holmes Chapel, Middlewich, Crewe and Sandbach, were called to the incident on the southbound carriageway between junctions 18 and 17 short before 7:30am this morning (22 November).

No one was trapped in the vehicles.

After helping the injured man, firefighters handed him over to the care of paramedics.

They used absorbent pads to soak up engine fluids that had leaked from one of the HGVs.

They also checked the engine's temperature with a thermal imaging camera to make sure that it was safe.

Fire crews left the scene after two hours.

The road has now fully reopened.
