M5 closed: Huge diesel spillage shuts road after lorry crashes through barrier


National Highways said a large section of crash barrier was badly damaged after the HGV hit the central reservation and a nearside barrier between junctions 13 and 14. Emergency services have been attending the incident which was first reported at 3.53am on Thursday. 

 

Traffic has been diverted via the A419 northbound, the A38 southbound to the B4509, to leave at J13 and return at J14.

National Highways said in a statement: “A lorry has struck the central reserve and then the nearside barrier, resulting in barrier damage and a significant spill of diesel and hydraulic fluid. 

“Emergency services, including Gloucestershire Police have attended. 

“Delays are likely on the approach to this closure, with additional journey times also expected on the diversion route.”
