The Severn Bridge was closed as strong winds swept across parts of Wales.
It is still closed Eastbound but is open for small vehicles only Westbound.
The diverted traffic means traffic is heavier than normal on the M4 Eastbound between J24(Coldra) and J23 the M48.
One lane is closed both ways and there is a 40mph speed limit on the Severn Bridge because of strong winds.
There are restrictions on the M48 Severn Bridge in both directions between J1 (Aust) and J2 (Chepstow).
Traffic is coming off the motorway, around the roundabout and back onto the carriageway.
These are regular restrictions in case the bridge needs to be closed quickly because of the wind.
One lane is closed because of strong winds on the M48 Severn Bridge between J1 (Aust) and J2 (Chepstow).
There is a speed limit of 40 mph.

The Welsh Affairs Committee will be holding their first evidence session as part of their enquiry into the future of the Severn River crossing today.
The Committee will hear from Philip, General Manager, and James Rawle, Deputy General Manager, of Severn River Crossing Plc.
It is expected that they will focus on the upcoming transition of the crossing to public ownership as well as the day-to-day concerns of motorists.
I am pleased that Severn River Crossing Plc have agreed to appear before the committee to outline what progress has been made ahead of the transfer of the crossings to public ownership. It is important that we are reassured that robust planning is being carried out and a timetable is in place to ensure that there is no disruption to services.
In this inquiry, we also want to know what the people who regularly use the crossings think. On 13 June we will be holding a public event in Chepstow and would welcome your views on how the crossings are run and what would improve your experience.
