HOLIDAY traffic is being blamed for congestion on the M5 - and knock-in problems in Taunton.

There are currently long delays and stop-start traffic on the M5 northbound between J25 (Taunton) and J20 (Clevedon).

Highways England says the travel time is an hour and 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, drivers attempting to avoid the traffic are leaving the motorway at junction 25 and heading for junction 24, meaning the route between Taunton and Bridgwater is also busy.
