The motorway is closed in both directions after the crash which happened at around 2.30pm on Saturday.

The M5 was closed in both directions and while diversions are in place, it is expected to remain closed until the early hours of the morning, authorities said. "One auto was completely destroyed, nearly like there was only half a vehicle left with what looked like somebody trapped inside".

Highways England says traffic is trapped for around five miles.

Another person wrote the lorry had crashed through the central reservation and drove off the road.

"There are now 13 ambulances at the scene including a critical care team".
