Traffic was stopped on the southbound carriageway between Junction 7 for Walsall and Junction 6 due to a major collision.

The barrier needed repairing and it took some time for the lorry involved in the incident to be recovered.

But all lanes had reopened by 2.30am, according to National Highways: West Midlands.
