A CRASH on the M50 closed a lane yesterday afternoon.

Lane two on the M50 between junctions one (Brockeridge Common Interchange) and two (Bury Court Interchange)was blocked following the crash.

West Mercia Police's Operations Patrol Unit confirmed the crash had occurred yesterday afternoon just before 6pm.

An image of a car was posted online which appeared to be damaged from the front, surrounded by traffic cones and an emergency service vehicle.

Drivers were warned to slow down in the wet conditions after the crash.

A spokesperson for National Highways said: "We were alerted to the incident at around 5pm.

"There was a full closure on the westbound carriageway between junctions one and two while the vehicle was recovered.

"One lane was opened at 5.45pm past the scene.

"However, there was extensive damage to the central reservation and debris across both the west and eastbound carriageways.

"Lane two was therefore closed on both carriageways while a repair was carried out and the debris removed.

"The road was fully open again by 11.20pm."

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a two-vehicle road traffic collision on the M50 but was stood down by police prior to arrival as there were no injuries.

Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service were not in attendance.

We have West Mercia Police for more.
