M5 traffic delays as oil spill leads to southbound delays
Posted In Blog
There are delays on the M5 this morning (October 29) following an oil spill.
One lane of the motorway was closed southbound after a vehicle broke down between J8 M50 to J9 A46 (Tewkesbury).
However, due to an oil spill this closure will have to remain in place.
"Due to an oil spill from the vehicle involved, the lane 3 closure will remain in place until the spillage has been treated and deemed safe to reopen."
Traffic cam pictures show long queues of traffic on the motorway.
