Two lanes were closed on the M5 southbound earlier this afternoon (Monday) and traffic remains very slow.

Two vehicles were involved in a crash and two out of the four lanes on the motorway were closed between junction 19 (Portishead) and junction 20 (Clevedon).

There are still tailbacks stretching to junction 19, but traffic is clearing.
