Serious crash blocks M5 motorway in Somerset

The northbound stretch of the M5 was closed between Wellington and Taunton following a serious accident on Thursday evening.

Avon and Somerset Police said a car struck the central reservation near junction 25.

The driver of the vehicle was injured although it is not yet known how seriously. No other vehicle is believed to have been involved.

A lane has now reopened, but the RAC say the area is very congested.
