The carriageway was closed because of lanes blocked by the vehicles involved in the collision and the northbound carriageway was shut briefly so an air ambulance could land on it. One man was treated by medics as a result of the crash, although it is understood his injuries are not serious.

The motorway is now reopened in both directions as of about 3.20pm.
