The M5 is was earlier reported as suffering severe delays southbound between J13 and J20 in South Gloucestershire and Somerset.
This was due the volume of traffic heading to the South West region.
Later, on Twitter, the report was much the same:
There are severe delays on the M5 southbound between J13 and J20 near Bristol. Heavy congestion is causing delays of around 90 minutes above normal journey times.
Road users intending on using the M5 in this region are encouraged to allow plenty of extra time for their journey and to consider having refreshments with you in your vehicle.
