Festival and show traffic brings motorway to standstill

The M6 motorway near Penrith was virtually at a standstill today as motorists made their way to Penrith show and the Kendal Calling music festival at Lowther Park.

Police reported heavy traffic on the southbound carriageway between junction 41 at Catterlen and  the junction 40 at Penrith.

A spokesman said traffic was very slow moving because of the volume of vehicles making their way to the major weekend events.
