M6 Southbound closed Credit: PA

The M6 Southbound is expected to be closed throughout the morning with travel time at least 60 minutes. It's due to a spillage of sulphuric acid from a lorry between Junction 4A M42 and Junction 4 M42 / A446 at Coleshill.

There's also congestion on the M6 to Junction 6 A38(M) Spaghetti Junction.

Diversions are in place. Traffic should leave the M6 at Junction 4A and travel north on M42 to Junction 9 and then take the sixth exit at the roundabout to join the M42 south. Leave the M42 at J7a to rejoin the M6 south. Follow the hollow triangle symbols.
