Commuters in Somerset faced delays of several hours today after the M5 was closed in both directions near Bridgwater.
It was after the top of a tanker split and kerosene spilt onto the carriageway.
Police working to clear the area now say the stretch of road between J23 and J24 is likely to remain closed for at least the rest of the day.
The closure puts a great deal of pressure on A roads and other surrounding routes.

Putting the 'moo' in commuting? The M5 was blocked in both directions in Gloucestershire last night - because a wandering cow had brought it to a standstill.
As baffled commuters waited in their cars (no doubt beeping their horns), Gloucestershire Road Police rushed out to save the day before the troublesome rambler could milk the situation any longer.
Finally, they tweeted the happy news that the cow had been reunited with its farmer - and the road could get moo-ving once more.
The M5 is blocked in both directions between J13 (Stroud) and J14 (Thornbury) after reports of an accident and animals on the road.
