TRAFFIC delays were caused on the M5 motorway after a caravan jack-knifed.

A West Mercia Police spokeswoman confirmed the force was called at around 4pm, on Friday, August 22, after the caravan jack-knifed while in lane three of the motorway, near junction six.

The motorway was closed while the caravan was removed from the lane, but was re-opened within an hour.

The female driver of the caravan did not suffer any major injuries.
