There are severe delays today because of emergency bridge repairs on M6 in both directions.

The closure is expected to remain in place throughout the afternoon.

The road is closed between J14 A34 / A5013 Creswell Grove (Stafford North) and J15 A500 (Stoke-On-Trent), with congestion on M6 to J13 A449 (Stafford South).

Roadworks overnight on the A51 found a defect in the bridge over the motorway so the M6 has had to be closed.

A diversion is in place, Highways England are advising people to follow the hollow triangle symbol Northbound and hollow square signs Southbound using the A500 and A34 past Stone.
