Traffic flow has since returned to normal but motorists have been urged to drive carefully.

A tweet at 8.40am says: "We've moved all the vehicles to the hard shoulder and released traffic in all lanes eastbound between J9 and J10 following a collision.

"All lanes now open but several vehicles on the hard shoulder so please pass with care. No delays."
