All three westbound lanes between junctions seven and eight were closed after the collision at about 11:15 BST.

One driver seriously hurt in the crash was taken to hospital.

The eastbound carriageway was shut for a short while to allow an air ambulance to land but the westbound carriageway was closed until just after 19:30 BST.
