A BADGER caused rush-hour traffic disruption for motorists on the M65 this morning.

Drivers were forced to swerve and brake to avoid the dead badger on the westbound carriageway near Junction 11 at Stoneyholme.

The carcass of the animal was laid across two lanes and a rolling road block was set up by motorway police at around 8-15am.

Officers managed to remove the dead badger and has now been reopened as normal.
