Bank Holiday travellers were caught up in tailbacks along the M55 after an accident closed a lane.

Emergency crews were called to the east bound carriageway of the motorway at around 4.45pm on Monday, to reports of a collision involving two vehicles.

One lane of the motorway was closed, at the junction linking the M55 to the M6 south bound.

The accident was cleared by highway patrols but sparked delays of up to 45 minutes for motorists between Junctions One and Three east bound.
