M42 CLOSED DUE TO SERIOUS ACCIDENT

The M42 in the West Midlands is closed northbound between junctions J2 and J3 due to a serious collision involving a lorry which is blocking the road.

Early indications are that they are hoping to re-open the motorway at 0430hrs but this is likely to be extended due to the seriousness of the incident.

A signed diversion is available for northbound traffic which should exit at J2 and join the A441 southbound towards Redditch, then join the A4023 eastbound and then join the A435 northbound towards Birmingham to rejoin the M42 at J3.
