Highways England blocked off the M6 northbound between J10, Walsall, and J10A, for the M54, while crews carried out an operation to remove the tree today.

A photograph showed the tall tree dangling almost horizontal over a face and across the M6.

Crews acted swiftly, with the blockage in place for only 20 minutes just after 10am.

Highways England tweeted: "#TrafficOfficers currently have a block on the Northbound #M6 between J10 #Walsall & J10A #M54Link whilst are crews remove a tree leaning over the carriageway."
