The A30 Westbound has been closed due to a medical emergency between the Chiverton Cross Roundabout and the A3047 (Scorrier).
Emergency services are dealing with an issue about a mile south of Chiverton.
The M48 Severn Bridge is closed all weekend.
It's for bridge maintenance work between Chepstow and Aust.
The diversion route has been extended due to the closure of the exit slip road at Junction 23a.
There's currently stop-start traffic on the A30 Southbound between Jamaica Inn Road and the A38 Launceston Road.
It's taken around 45 minutes to get through the roadworks area - holiday traffic mixed with the usual congestion at traffic restrictions is leading to an unusually long delay.
There's queueing traffic on the M5 Southbound between J21 and J22.
The vehicles involved are now on the hard shoulder, and all lanes are open, but there is still heavy congestion between Weston-super-mare and Burnham-on-sea.
The West is in store for a weekend of sunshine (with a few scattered showers...)Read the full story ›

With recent events, both in the UK and abroad, it is understandable that we are seeing an increase in calls from members of the public reporting suspicious behaviour. It is only right that we fully investigate calls of this nature. Thankfully, this incident turned out to be non-suspicious.
