Warning of pedestrians on Cumbrian motorway

Motorists were being warned to proceed with caution – after reports of people on the M6.

Travel warnings were issued for anyone using the northbound carriageway, between junction 40 for Penrith and junction 41 for Wigton, at about 2.30pm yesterday.

A spokeswoman for Cumbria police confirmed they had received a call reporting a man walking along the hard shoulder of the motorway.

The issue was passed to the Highways Agency, who are responsible for the M6.

At about 3pm the agency confirmed that “people cleared from road”.
