Swan causes closure of one lane of M5 near Weston
A swan got on to the motorway near Weston-super-Mare, which forced the closure of one lane of the M5 at around 2.45pm today.
It affected the M5 northbound between Junction 22 (A38 / B3140 Burnham-on-Sea) and Junction 21 (A370 / B3440 Weston-super-Mare) where there were tailbacks.
Ashley Nicholls said on Twitter: "Just seen a swan on the M5 chilling out, sitting down in the middle lane! I'll give it five minutes."
