An accident which closed lanes on the eastbound M4 left the motorway near Newport severely congested.

The collision between a lorry, two cars and a motorcycle left the carriageway closed until nearly 0800 BST on Monday morning.

The vehicles have now been cleared to the hard shoulder between the Coldra roundabout at junction 24and Magor services at 23A.

Queues were reported as far back as the Caerleon turnoff at junction 25.
