And now over to Nick with the latest update on the traffic situation.
Thanks Andy. Well, there's a bit of a headache for drivers coming into the city center this morning.
First of all, a serious accident has completely blocked the A6, Chapel Street in Salford, between Bridge Street and Blackfriar Street.
There are already long tail-backs of traffic there and the police say the road won't be open again for another hour or so.
Drivers should use Liverpool Road to come into the city center from the Salford Area.
Once again, that's an accident blocking the A6, Chapel Street, between Bridge Street and Blackfriars Street, in Salford.
Another emergency, this time in John Dalton Street in the center of the town, er, where a fire has meant the closing of the road and has also led to restricted access to Albert Square and the southern end of Crossing Street, down there near the Town Hall.
Avoid that area if you possibly can. It looks like things are pretty snarled up there.
John Dalton Street, at the junction with Crossing Street and Albert Square, there is a fire, causing serious congestion and delays of course.
Er, meanwhile in Cannon Street, things are pretty wet outside the Cathedral, because... Yes, You've guessed it, there's a burst water main.
The Water Authority gentlemen are all out there in their wellingtons, but the road is, in fact, closed to traffic.
That's Cannon Street closed between Deansgate and Corporation Street, due to a burst water main.
And whilst we're talking about pipes under the ground, just a reminder that the sewer reconstruction work is still going on in Great Ancoats Street, in Ancoats, with traffic being diverted into Henry Street on the east side of Great Ancoats Street, between Oldham Road and Ancoats.
And finally, there are roadworks starting today in Mosley Street, in the city center, between Princess Street and Piccadilly Gardens.
This section of Mosley Street will be reduced to single lane traffic controlled by temporary traffic lights and delays are expected.
The work is due to last at least a fortnight, so try to avoid Mosley Street, if you're in a hurry and especially at peak times.
Well, not a very happy picture on the roads in Central Manchester this morning, I am afraid.
British Rail report no problem on the trains this morning, however, and things are running smoothly down at the airport, too.
We'll have another update on the road situation after news at nine. Meanwhile, back to Andy.
Thanks very much, Nick.
