The junction had to be closed in all directions while the two wrecked vehicles were moved to a safe place.

There were three people in the cars and they were treated for minor injuries, having all got out of the written-off vehicles before the fire crews arrived.

The North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) also attended but all three people involved declined hospital treatment.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) have now begun an investigation.

The junction remained shut for more than an hour.
