A crash involving up to six cars is causing delays on the M4 eastbound between junction 26, Malpas Road, and 28, Tredegar Park.
One lane is blocked but most of the cars involved are now on the hard shoulder.
A four day strike by firefighters that was due to affect all English and Welsh fire services won't go ahead in Wales. It will still take place in England, starting on Friday. The Fire Brigades Union says there has been "a significant change of direction" by the Welsh government in a long running pensions dispute.
While the Westminster government continue to ignore the concerns raised by firefighters, the Welsh government have now suggested an improved proposal that could significantly improve the position for a large number of firefighters in Wales. This would involve altering the way firefighters could choose to retire before the age of 60.
The UK government wants to raise firefighters' retirement age from 55 to 60, which their union says would leave them facing dismissal if they are no longer physically able to do the job. The FBU expects the UK government to make the change without any further consultation before a vote at Westminster.
Extending the change to Wales would require a vote in the Assembly. The union says it's received a letter from the Welsh Government saying that the new Minister for Public Services, Leighton Andrews, will first consult "on pension scheme design that will differ from the one proposed in England".
This could be a significant improvement for a significant number of firefighters and cannot be ignored. The Welsh Government ... acted ... whilst the Westminster government continues to ignore all the evidence. It does support our view that strike action is avoidable if there is a willingness to do so but the Westminster government doesn’t seem to want that.
The union says that suspending strike action in Wales is a temporary measure whilst it waits to see what its Welsh members are offered. Firefighters' terms and conditions are not at present devolved and there have not yet been any detailed discussions about the future position in Wales. The Welsh Government declined to comment.
