The M5 has reopened all lanes following a car crash earlier this morning.

In a tweet posted by National Highways: West Midlands, it was announced that "repairs are now complete and all lanes have re-opened."

The collision, which involved a heavy goods vehicle and a car, closed the southbound carriageway between junction five (Droitwich) and six (Worcester).

Both of the vehicles were overturned and ended up on their side, with the HGV  on the embankment and leaning into lane 1.

Lanes 2, 3 and 4 are opened before midday, with lane 1 remaining closed for over three more hours to repair the barriers damaged during the collision.
