M5 southbound reopens after lorry barrier crash

Two lanes of the M5 southbound have reopened after a lorry crashed into the central reservation in the West Midlands.

The lorry crashed between junction two and three at about 2130 GMT on Tuesday, shedding diesel across the carriageways, which needed resurfacing.

The driver was unhurt and no other vehicle was involved in the crash, the Highways Agency said.

Two lanes were opened in each direction at about 0835 GMT, the agency said.

Repairs are being carried out to the barrier.
