A stretch of the M4 around Newport was reopened six hours after it was shut to fix an overhead sign which came loose in high winds.

It was closed from junction 24 Coldra to 28 at Tredegar Park from 21:00 GMT on Friday to 03:40 on Saturday.

Officials said it led to very slow traffic as motorists were forced to come off the motorway.

A diversion using the A48 through Newport was put in place as emergency repairs were carried out.
