Overturned refuse lorry closes M6 in Warwickshire

Rubbish and a diesel spill from an overturned refuse lorry closed part of the M6 southbound in Warwickshire for much of the afternoon.

The incident occurred north of Coventry at junction two of the motorway at about 12:45 GMT, the Highways Agency said.

The lorry, which was the only vehicle involved, overturned as it exited a traffic island.

The southbound carriageway between junctions three and two was closed to clear the area, with subsequent diversions put in place.
