THE M6 motorway is closed going through Rugby this morning (Monday) following a multi-vehicle accident.

The motorway is closed southbound between junction two and from where it merges with the M1 near Catthorpe, after an accident earlier this morning involving a number of vehicles.

The entry slip road at Rugby’s junction one is also closed.

There is also congestion going northbound between junction one and two.

The accident has caused huge delays and miles of tailbacks.

The motorway is due to reopen at around 10am.
