The southbound carriageway was closed just after 6.15am this morning at Junction 10 for Walsall, causing congestion up to Junction 12 for Gailey. The closure has also seen the M54 closed as a result. The A460 and the A462 are queuing as people divert away through Shareshill and Essington. Traffic is also slow on the northbound side back to Junction 8.
The M54 junction on the M6 has been closed eastbound from junction 1 for Wolverhampton/Cannock, to the M6 junction 10A.
It is believed a man has been hit by a lorry on the M6.
To add further rush hour trouble, the M6 has had one lane closed northbound after an accident between junctions 7 and 8.
Lane one of four is closed after junction 7 for Great Barr.
