Road sign on its side on the outside lane

Reported via mobile in the Roadworks (NH) category anonymously at 20:57, Tue 13 June 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4669297.

On route to work this morning I noticed a road sign that was left on its side lent up against the central reservation on the m56 between junction 9 & 7 going towards Manchester airport It’s clearly been missed by the workers & my worry is if this blows in the wind or gets clipped by a car it could be dangerous
