Motorists have faced severe delays as the Christmas rush kicks in.

There have been eight-mile queues on the M42 Northbound between J3A (M40 Interchange) and J6 A45 Coventry Road (Birmingham Airport / Coventry) this afternoon.

Travel time was 25 minutes.

There has also been stop-start traffic for seven miles on M42 Southbound between J9 A4097 Kingsbury Road (Curdworth / Coleshill ) and J6 A45 Coventry Road (Birmingham Airport / Coventry).

Travel time was 20 minutes.

On the Coventry eastern bypass, there has once again been queueing traffic in both directions at A428 Brandon Road (Tgi Island) in the roadworks area.

Farther afield, over on the M1, there was slow traffic due to an earlier accident, three cars involved on M1 Southbound from J17 M45 (Dunchurch / Coventry) to J16 A4500 (Daventry). All lanes have been re-opened.

Many people are finishing work today before Christmas, or out shopping with families in the lead-up to Christmas Eve.
