The motorway was closed in both directions near Oldbury for around three hours on Wednesday as a result of the incident which happened at around 11.20am.

The boy, who witnesses said appeared to be in his early teens, was on foot when he was hit and has been taken to Birmingham Children's Hospital.

It is not yet clear how the boy came to be on the carriageway. Police officers were seen recovering a push bike from near the motorway.

West Midlands Police have now said the boy is still in hospital recovering, but is not in a life-threatening condition.
