M6 | Warwickshire | Carriageway Closure | Expect Delays

The M6 is currently closed from J2 to J3 with
delays of at least 15 minutes covering several miles of the northbound
carriageway. This closure is due to a overturned HGV which has subsequently caught fire. Highways England has
resources deployed working hard to restore normal conditions as soon as
possible.

All emergency services are in attendance including the Central Motorway Police, who are leading the response to this incident and will be conducting collision investigations. The road is expected to remain closed throughout the night.

For traffic approaching the closure locally, you are advised to expect
disruption with extra journey time and may potentially have to re-route your
journey. 

If travelling towards this area from much farther afield, you may wish to
change your strategic route, allow extra travel time and follow guidance from
our on-road variable message signs and media.
