"On arrival, crews discovered a car and lorry that had been in collision.

"There was one patient, a man, who had to be cut free from his car by the fire service.

"He was treated for serious injuries before being taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, by land ambulance."

Three Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue crews from Worcester, Droitwich and Evesham Fire Stations and two Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service crews attended.

The M5 was closed between junction 7 (Worcester/Evesham) and junction 8 (Strensham) in both directions while emergency services dealt with the incident.

Midlands Air Ambulance was called to the motorway while two-hour queues of traffic built up on the northbound carriageway.

Traffic backed up between Droitwich and Junction 10 (Cheltenham).

In Worcester, roads surrounding the motorway were busy with traffic including the A4440 and the A38 through Severn Stoke and Kempsey was congested.
