The three vehicles have now been recovered but motorists are warned there are currently 60 minutes of residual delays as a result of the earlier closure.

A Highways England spokesperson said: “There is six miles of slow moving traffic on approach.

“Road users are advised to allow plenty of time for delays to ease and may wish to consider using an alternative route if possible.”
