A section of the M61 near Bolton was closed earlier today after a body was found on the carriageway.

Just after 2am, police were called to a section of the southbound M61 motorway at Kearsley in Bolton following reports a body had been seen in the carriageway. 



Police closed the M61 southbound at junction four, but it has now reopened.



Superintendent Stuart Barton said: "A large-scale policing response is in place following this tragic incident. 



"We are making a number of inquiries at the scene.



"We are still trying to establish the identity of the woman who has died, so we can find and notify next of kin as soon as possible. 



"It is too early to say whether there are any suspicious circumstances, and the road is still closed so we can do our best to understand what happened.
