TRAFFIC is still slow on the motorway past Weston following an accident earlier today (Sat).

The Highways Agency is reporting congestion on the southbound of the M5 from junction 19 at Avonmouth down to junction 25 at Taunton.

The heavy traffic is a result of an overturned caravan near Bristol at lunchtime combined with people getting away for the bank holiday weekend.

The agency has said motorists should expect delays to their journey of up to three hours.
