The incident took place around 9.15am between three vehicles on the M6 between Junction 8 and Junction 7 near Great Barr.

Emergency services including an ambulance attended the scene where three people were assessed. whilst National Highways had to wait before assessing the damage to barriers on the motorway.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said: "Three patients were assessed and discharged at the scene."

National Highways initially said that the barriers had to be assessed before the lanes were reopened but once everything was cleared up, an assessment on the barriers took place and the lanes were reopened without any repairs needed.

A spokesman for National Highways said: "The barriers have all been assessed and they are ok, all lanes have now been reopened."
