An overturned trailer on the M5 which left three lanes closed has now been cleared.

Emergency services were called to the scene, between Junction 27 - which connects to the North Devon Link Road near Tiverton and Junction 26 - which connects to the A38 near Wellington,at about 2.10pm.

It is believed a vehicle towing a trailer had flipped and collided with the central reservation.

No injuries were sustained and the overturned car has now been righted and moved to the hard shoulder.

All lanes have re-opened and delays have been cleared.
