M6 shut by 'unsafe bridge' between junctions 14 and 15

Parts of the M6, completely closed due to an "unsafe" bridge in Staffordshire, may not reopen until Friday evening.

Highways England says routine maintenance work on the A51 bridge between junctions 14 and 15 found fascia panels urgently needed removing from the underside of the bridge.

It stressed to BBC Radio Stoke no panels had fallen down and it had decided to remove them as staff were already on site earlier.
