M62 BROUGHT TO A STANDSTILL BETWEEN ECCLES AND BIRCHWOOD BY ROADHOGS

Local News
Escaped pigs cause huge curly tail backs for drivers this afternoon.

North West Motorway Police responded after four escaped pigs caused curly tailbacks between junction 12 at the Eccles interchange all the way to junction 11 at Birchwood.

Traffic was stopped in both directions after the lane hogging porkers were spotted wandering around on the grass verge at the side of the carriageway.

It looked like it could be Gam-mon for the police as they tried to coral the escapees back into a neighbouring field but it was no ham-fisted attempt and they were quickly sent bac-on to safe ground.

Fortunately there were no accidents or injuries and a Ham-bulance was not needed.

It is believed that they could have been thumbing a lift to Swineton.

The traffic has now been allowed to flow again.
