Two lanes closed and very slow traffic due to debris on road and accident, two lorries involved on M42 Southbound before J1 A38 / B4096 (Bromsgrove).

Lane one (of three) closed heading towards the M5. One of the lorries is carrying concrete pipes which weigh four tonnes each, with several of them falling onto the carriageway. These require removal before recovery can commence.
