Avon and Somerset Constabulary.

A crash on the M5 is causing major delays on the M5 this morning (Monday) near Weston-super-Mare.

The accident occurred on the northbound carriageway just south of junction 20 (Clevedon).

The outside lane was closed while recovery work was carried out.

Police say all lanes have now reopened.

However, traffic is queuing back past junction 21 (Weston) meaning commuters face delays of at least 30 minutes.

There are also delays on the A370 Somerset Avenue as drivers try to get on to the M5.

UPDATE: The road has been cleared and traffic levels have returned to normal.
