People trapped in the lockdown angrily went to Twitter after emergency services were banned from drivers using the blocked lanes.

Others complained that “hundreds” of drivers used the closed lanes and hard shoulder to escape the queues.

One person tweeted, “That on the M60 could be the scariest aftermath of a car crash I’ve ever seen!

“There are 12 police cars, eight fire engines and one car crashed into the median, without a roof, without an engine block, nothing. The traffic is stuck in traffic for miles!”

Another added, “All of the injured, I hope you have a good recovery, and all of these idiots who put more people at risk by not sticking to the very big red Xs like that.”

Police confirmed that five people had suffered minor injuries and one woman was rushed to hospital with more severe injuries.

A spokesman for the Greater Manchester Police Department said:

“Officials, accompanied by ambulance and fire services, discovered that one woman was seriously injured while five others were minor injuries.
