Traffic is back on the move on the M4 in south Wales after a crash in the Brynglas Tunnels caused ten miles of tailbacks.

The multi-vehicle collision at just after 06:30 BST closed one lane of the eastbound carriageway and caused 90-minute queues back towards Cardiff.

The accident has now been cleared and the lane has reopened.

The incident also affected the A48 (M) westbound and caused congestion on the A48 Eastern Avenue.
