Heading from Chorley towards Manchester direction at j8 on M61. Damage to slip road at point if joining motorway, took out my rear near side tyre this morning, not visible in heavy rain. Luckily was at 55/60 mph and accident was avoided but left me with a £320 tyre bill, death trap waiting to happen.
