Two lanes are closed on the M6 Northbound Staffordshire Credit: PA

Two lanes are closed and there's very slow traffic due to a spillage of 100 litres of diesel from a lorry involved in an earlier accident.

It happened between Junction 12 A5 (Gailey) and Junction 13 A449 (Stafford South). The closures are also causing congestion to Junction 11a M6 Toll.
