Serious crash on M5 closes motorway for entire day

Part of the M5 will be closed for the rest of the day after a serious crash involving two lorries and a car.

Police were called to reports of a three-vehicle collision on the northbound carriageway of the M5 between Junction 9 at Tewkesbury and Junction 11 in Gloucester at 5.20am on Sunday.

A Ford Fiesta is believed to have parked behind a lorry to offer help, causing a second lorry to crash into the first, Gloucestershire Police said.

One of the vehicles caught fire, according to Highways England.

The M5 will be closed northbound between Junctions 9 and 11 until tomorrow “due to extensive road surface damage that must be resurfaced” as a result of the crash, it tweeted.

The southbound carriageway is also closed between Junction 9 at Tewkesbury and Junction 10 in Cheltenham, but is expected to reopen later today.

It is not yet clear if anyone involved suffered injuries.
