PART of the M6 was closed this morning after two vehicles crashed into the central reservation barrier.

The incident happened by the Croft Interchange on the northbound carriageway between junction 21A and 22 before 6am, with diversions put in place.

However, just before 9.30am, Highways England confirmed that contractors had managed to completely clear the carriageway of all debris.

Road users had earlier been advised to expect delays on the approach to the incident and to allow extra time for their journeys.
