Truck blocks motorway.

A LORRY ploughed into the central crash barrier of the M5, bringing havoc to Midland roads.

Northbound traffic was halted early yesterday afternoon after the articulated lorry toppled over in north Worcestershire, blocking all three lanes.

The Futurwaste solution lorry shed its load between junction three and four, near Bromsgrove.

The fast lane of the southbound carriageway also had to be closed off.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said nobody was injured in the crash.

CAPTION(S):

MAYHEM... the Futurwaste lorry tipped over on the M5 near the Bromsgrove junction.
