Motorists using the M5 through the Burnham-On-Sea are faced long delays on Sunday (July 30th) after an ambulance fire closed three lanes.

Motorists driving on the M5 northbound facing delays after the mid-morning vehicle fire, between Junction 21 and Junction 20.

The lanes have now been re-opened, but queues stretched back past Sedgemoor Services to Burnham-On-Sea.

Highways England reported delays of up to two and a half hours.

Eyewitness Dawn Ellis posted this photo of an ambulance that had caught fire.

She said: “Tailbacks almost as far as junction 23! Miles and miles. Lots of people out of cars wondering what’s going on.”
