Motorists in the Burnham-On-Sea area faced queues of up to seven miles following a crash on the M5 on Monday (December 30th).

A four-vehicle collision occurred at just before 11.30am, closing one lane on the northbound carriageway between junctions 23 for Bridgwater North and 22 for Burnham-On-Sea.

Highways England said motorists faced long delays as emergency services dealt with the incident and moved debris onto hard shoulder.

A spokesman for South Western Ambulance Service said: “We were called at 11.25am to attend a four-vehicle road traffic collision between junction 23 and junction 22 northbound of the M5 motorway.”

“Two patients required treatment, which was given at the scene. Both patients were then discharged at the scene.”

A Police spokeswoman told there had been no serious injuries in the incident.
