National Express West Midlands reported the issue on the A460 at around 2.40pm on Tuesday.

It said the road had been blocked between Orbital Way and Voyager Drive.

The AA also warned of the partial closure of the road and reported queues of traffic due to an "obstruction" on the route.

Bus passengers were advised that the X51, which runs between Birmingham and Cannock, had diverted in both directions via the A5 Watling Street, Delta Way, Walsall Road and Mill Street.

National Express West Midlands later advised at around 3.30pm that the X51 was running as normal and the incident had cleared.

A spokesman for Staffordshire Police said the road closure was believed to be caused by a broken down lorry.
