UPDATED: Southbound M5 traffic queuing from Stroud to Bristol with delays of just over an hour

TRAFFIC travelling southbound is queued from Bristol back to Stroud with drivers being warned to expect delays of around an hour and a quarter. On its website, Highways England states that the delays have been caused by congestion in the Bristol area with traffic at a standstill between Stroud and Clevedon.

Earlier this morning there were delays due to an overturned lorry between Junction 10 and 11 southbound near Cheltenham. A car was also involved and it is believed there was a collision between the two.

But police said that the incident was ‘damage-only’ and there would be no further police involvement.
