Drivers are being warned to find alternate routes after the A500 was closed following a crash between four lorries.
Emergency services were sent to the scene on the southbound carriageway of the D-Road, between the turn-offs for Talke and Audley, earlier today before the road was closed at around 12.45pm.

“Just before 12.45pm the road was closed to assist. Originally lane one (of two) was closed. Affecting traffic heading away from M6 J16 towards Stoke.”
