Congestion has now cleared on the M4 in south Wales after a collision near the Brynglas tunnels at Newport on Monday morning, says Traffic Wales.

Emergency services were called to the scene after reports of a car spinning across the carriageway from the central reservation to the hard shoulder.

One lane was closed due on the westbound carriageway between J26 A4042/A4051 (Malpas Road) and J27 B4591 (High Cross) but has since reopened.

Six-mile (9km) tailbacks were reported.

Nearby roads were also congested.

These included the southbound A4051 Malpas Road to Bettws Lane (at Bettws Lights) and westbound to J24 A48 / A449 (Coldra).
