  • Crash caused chaos on the busy motorway in the midst of Christmas getaway 

The Christmas getaway chaos was compounded today after a Lamborghini crashed on a busy motorway. 

The £280,000 sports car was written off as it careered off the wet road and onto the grass verge of the M62 in Hutton near Liverpool this morning, leading to lengthy tailbacks. 

But police at the scene slammed rubberneckers, asking them to refrain from ‘revving their engines and shouting at us’ as they drove past the scene.

Police later tweeted: ‘All lanes on the M62 are now open and traffic back to normal. Thanks to the majority of people who adhered to the red X’s, and to those who didn’t, expect your letter in the post in the new year!’
