LONG delays are expected following a broken down lorry on the M5 northbound near Droitwich.

The lorry was stranded in lane three between J5 A38 (Droitwich / Wychbold) and J4A M42 but has now been recovered.

The lorry's clutch had failed making the recovery difficult.

All lanes are now open but motorists should allow extra time if heading towards the area this evening.
