THE M42 is now open between Junction 1 and Junction 4a of the M5 after an earlier crash.

One lane is still shut so debris can be cleared but the rest of the carriageway is flowing.

Traffic was stretching back seven miles following the collision between a car and a lorry just after 3pm.

The incident led to a knock-on effect with congestion on the A38 through Bromsgrove as motorists find alternative routes.
