Traffic is moving slowly after a car stalled on the A370 heading into Weston-super-Mare.

Delays are also reported northbound due to traffic entering the carriageway.

A spokesman for AA said: “One lane of two is closed on the exit ramp causing slow traffic due to a stalled vehicle on the M5 southbound at junction 21, heading to Weston.

“Normal traffic conditions are expected between 4.15pm and 4.30pm.”
