Traffic delays are easing on the M4 heading into Wales following a van fire on the second Severn crossing.

The incident had caused smoke to blow across the motorway, and the westbound carriageway had been fully blocked until 07:30 GMT.

All three lanes have now reopened and traffic congestion is reported to have improved.

Drivers were originally advised to approach the area with care, and to use the old Severn Bridge if possible.
