Multi-vehicle crash on M4 near Newport causes tailbacks

Emergency services have been dealing with a multi-vehicle crash on the M4 near Newport, which caused two lanes of the motorway to close.

The collision happened westbound between junctions 26 and 27 in Malpas at about 09:55 BST on Tuesday.

Police were called, along with the fire service, two ambulances and a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle.

Gwent Police said six vehicles were involved, although the Welsh Ambulance service said there were four.

Traffic Wales said the lanes later reopened but tailbacks continued to cause problems.
