Well done SWA for reporting that the injured are not in a serious condition and I hope them a speedy recovery.
But as for the Police, how many more lessons to be learned when dealing with closing this bad stretch of M4 ? The grid lock caused a lot of dangers for ' Joe ' public around Newport !
I thought a closure is for fatalities' ? but 6 hours ' ,come on now ;

it was closed due to the oil and petrol on the road, would you want another accident if a motor bike went over it and skidded? it takes time for the sand to absorb the liquids as they are not as easily absorbed as water, jeez though tall drivers would know this, just a bit of common sense. lanes 1 & 2 were covered in it and it was slowly going onto lane 3

Prob those stupid variable speed limit signs idiots jumping on the brakes.
Just for the people who don't know what the white circle is with a couple of lines through it means.......it's national speed limit....which is 70mph on a motorway so speed back up.
Absorbent granuals are used for sucking up spills it takes 20 mins.
No-one dead get it back open!
