A crash has occurred on the M5 this lunchtime (Saturday), and is causing significant delays near Weston-super-Mare.

A collision near junction 21 on the northbound carriageway forced Highways England to close one of the three lanes.

The M5 was blocked temporarily but all the lanes were reopened shortly before 1pm.

Highways England is warning drivers to expect a 30-minute delay.

A spokesman said: “There are severe delays on the M5 northbound between junctions 23 and 20 following an earlier collision which has cleared.

“Please plan ahead.”
