Drivers on the M5 are facing delays following a collision involving a vehicle carrying cattle.

The M5 northbound carriageway between Junction 5 Droitwich and Junction 4A had been fully closed after the crash, which saw the vehicle carrying the cattle overturn on the carriageway. All lanes have since re-opened.

As a result, drivers have been subjected to delays of up to 90 minutes on approach. National Highways said in an update: "All lanes have now re-opened on the #M5 in #Worcestershire northbound between J5 (#DroitwichSpa) & J4 (#M42) following a collision.

"Delays are easing, please still allow extra journey time. Thank you for your patience."
