The holiday season is likely to put the M5 in the South West under more pressure today as people hit the roads for days out or for time away.
With people travelling at different times due to the summer break, we’ll be keeping a close eye on traffic levels.
This morning, a slip road on the M5 was closed near Bristol.
The northbound exit slip road at junction 19 (Portishead) was shut at around 9am.
This was due to a broken down lorry. It has since reopened.
