Motorists are now facing delays of up one hour on the M5 near Portishead and Clevedon.

Highways England reported traffic delays of up to three hours earlier this morning due to a two-lane closure on the northbound carriageway and the motorway was gridlocked from Avonmouth to Weston-super-Mare.

The lanes were closed after a lorry hit the central reservation on the M5 in between Portishead and Avonmouth just before 3am this morning (Thursday).

Normal traffic conditions are expected to resume at around 11am today.
