A truck is currently on fire on the M5. All traffic travelling east citybound has been stopped.
All westbound lanes have just been reopend.
Traffic already in the area is being diverted via the signposted D5 route.
Citybound traffic on the M5 is diverting at King Georges Road to then use Stoney Creek Road and Forest Road, while westbound traffic is diverting at General Holmes Drive.
Traffic is very heavy in both directions, so motorists should allow plenty of extra travel time and expect significant delays.
Emergency services are working to put the fire out and motorway crews are on site.
