M5 southbound cleared after serious crashes

All lanes are now open and traffic is flowing well on the M5 southbound between junction 14 for Thornbury and junction 15 for the M4 following a serious crash earlier this morning.

There were delays of up to an hour on the M5 Bristol to the M4 Almondsbury interchange after a serious crash involving three lorries and a car.

The collision occurred at around 6am with emergency services called to the M5 southbound between Thornbury and the M4.

A mechanical sweeper was deployed to help clear a large amount of hay that was shed by a lorry during the crash.

There are no reports of any serious injuries and Highways England reopened the lanes a few hours earlier than expected.
