Lane closure causes tailback on M5 near Junction 23

THERE is a tailback on the M5 southbound near junction 23 (Bridgwater North) this morning because of a lane closure.

The lane was coned off just after 8.30am to allow workers to carry out emergency repairs to a pothole.

The rush-hour congestion on the stretch which connects to the A39 has added to the problem.

Traffic is likely to be heavier than usual today as holidaymakers head to the South West for the weekend.
