TRAFFIC is starting to build ahead of this morning's rush hour.

Drivers heading into Bristol are already experiencing queues on the ring road while the roads heading into Gloucester and Cheltenham are also busy.

Serious crashes have also forced police to close the M5 between junctions 25 and 26 near Taunton and 28 and 29 near Exeter.

Elsewhere, traffic is also building on the A46 at the M4 roundabout in Tormarton.

Updates follow.
