TWO lanes of the M5 were closed this morning (Thurs) when a woman's car collided with a lorry.

Police were made aware of a set of ladders on the motorway at around 7.15am and shortly afterwards the accident occurred.

A woman was taken to Weston General Hospital with neck and back injuries after the middle and fast lanes of the motorway between junctions 21 and 22 southbound were closed so that emergency services could get her from her car.

She was conscious throughout.

The road was reopened at around 8.30am.
