Traffic was stopped following the collision involving multiple vehicles on the southbound carriageway between Junction 9, for Wednesbury, and Junction 8, for the M5, on Monday morning.

Emergency services were called to the scene – within sight of the Wednesbury Ikea store – shortly before 8am.

Initially three of the four lanes were closed before traffic was stopped completely while “all emergency services” attended.

National Highways West Midlands said at 9.30am that two of the four lanes remained closed for recovery and collision clear-up work and there are tailbacks of about seven miles.
