Aston Expressway closed after crash oil spillage

A main route though Birmingham was closed throughout this morning after a car crashed into a barrier and caused an oil spillage.

It happened on a slip road to the M6, off the Aston Expressway, at around 3am and led to part of the route being closed until mid-afternoon as part of the clean-up operation.

The Central Motorway Police Group tweeted that the Expressway out of city was closed  due to an earlier drink-drive road traffic collision.
