Traffic is moving slowly this evening (Wednesday) in and around Congresbury due to roadworks.

Delays on the A370 of up to 17 minutes have been reported travelling away from Weston-super-Mare.

However, traffic coming from Bristol stretches for three to four miles through Yatton, Cleeve and as far as Backwell.

There are also jams in Congresbury itself as a result of the roadworks.

Traffic is anticipated to worsen as rush hour approaches.

*UPDATE* Delays of up to 28 minutes have now been reported.
