Traffic is now moving again on the M5.

A car had broken down on the southbound carriageway between J16 A38 Gloucester Road (Aztec West) and J17 A4018 (Cribbs Causeway).

As the car was in the third lane, traffic was held to allow the vehicle to be safely moved. 

Avon and Somerset Police attended the scene of the incident.

There were long delays in the area but these have now started to ease.
