11-mile jam easing after Newport M4 three-vehicle crash

An 11-mile (18km) traffic queue of morning commuters on the eastbound M4 near Newport, following a three-vehicle crash, has eased, says Traffic Wales.

One person had to be cut free from one of the vehicles after the incident between junction 24 at Coldra and Magor services at around 07:15 GMT on Monday.

One lane was closed, which caused delays with traffic queuing for the Brynglas tunnels, but has reopened.

South Wales Fire and Rescue Service cleared the incident by 08:35 GMT.
