Overturned lorry causes five mile tailbacks on M5

TWO lanes of the M5 in Somerset were closed this morning after an overturned lorry spilled milk and diesel.

The lorry shed its load at about 5:30am, causing the blockage on the northbound carriageway between junctions 21 and 20.

The lorry has since been recovered and all lanes have reopened.

Highways England said the partial closure caused about five-and-a-half miles of tailbacks, adding up to 90 minutes on journey times.
