ROADS police have urged drivers to take care on the M6 while they deal with a broken down van.

The vehicle was reported to be on the third lane of the southbound carriageway at Shap just after 6pm.

Cumbria Roads Police said: "We're trying to cone out and make a safe working area in abysmal weather conditions.

"When you see us, please slow down and move across, help protect the protectors."
