Emergency services are currently dealing with an overturned vehicle on the M6 - which has left the motorway closed. The collision has taken place between Junction 20 and 21 on the northbound carriageway. National Highways has said that 'emergency services and traffic officers' have been scrambled to the incident.

And in the latest update it has been confirmed a closure on the northbound is in place. A post on X from National Highways states: "The M6 north is now closed within J21 due to an incident involving an overturned vehicle. "Traffic is being diverted via the exit and entry slip roads.

Recovery is en-route.
