Firefighters attended to a collision on the M56 westbound carriageway between junction six and junction seven.

The collision involved two HGVs and a car.

One of the HGV's cab was well alight.

Crews tackled the blaze wearing four breathing apparatus and four hose reels.

They then dampened down and checked the temperature using a thermal imaging camera.

Matts and soil were used to soak a small amount of oil that had leaked from one of the vehicles.

Ambulance attended and all three drivers from each vehicle are believed to have sustained no injuries. 

Highways England are arranging recovery of the vehicles.
