M5 traffic live updates: Long delays after Somerset crash
Long delays are forming on the M5 through Somerset as holidaymakers descend on the South West during the final weekend of the school summer break.
The problems started on the M5 northbound, near junction 26 for Wellington, which was blocked after a crash and Highways England said traffic was 'not moving' (Friday, September 1).
Traffic monitor Inrix stated at the time of the crash this morning: "M5 Northbound partially blocked, delays due to accident at J26 A38 (Wellington)."
Drivers on the M5 between Bristol and Exeter regularly face delays at this time of the year, with sections past Bristol, Bridgwater and Taunton often brought to a standstill as holidaymakers travel to their favourite destinations across the West Country.
Term dates may differ by local authority areas but most schools in England and Wales will resume lessons from Monday (September 4). Journeys may also be impacted by the latest round of 24-hour rail strikes in a dispute over pay.
