A CAR ended up on its roof on the M5 northbound between Burnham and Weston this morning, leaving one person in need of treatment by paramedics.

Two sets of fire crews from Burnham and Bridgwater were called to the scene between junctions 22 and 21 at 7.34am, finding all passengers free and clear of the vehicle on their arrival.

Motorists are asked to be extra vigilant while driving today (Sunday August 10) in light of surface water collecting on the M5 and M4.
