VERY slow traffic is reported due to an accident, now on the hard shoulder on the M4 eastbound between J24 at the Coldra and J23A at Magor Services.

Congestion is stretching back to J25 at Caerleon. All lanes have been re-opened. Lane two (Of two) of the main carriageway was blocked by six vehicles half way between the two junctions until 07.05.

Police have moved all vehicles off the main carriageway, with residual congestion not helped by usual rush hour traffic
