One lane was closed for around an hour on Saturday morning, reopening around 11.15am.

There was also a broken down vehicle exiting the Queensway Tunnel onto the Aston Expressway coming out of Birmingham. Lane one of two was blocked.

Icy conditions are causing problems on the region's roads with the Met Office issuing a yellow weather warning into Sunday morning for snow and ice which they say may cause disruption to transport and infrastructure and lead to longer journey times.
