M6 crash

I left late on Friday (last night) and expected a relatively quick drive home (it is, after all, only 114 miles or so) BUT a crash on the M6 around 6am was still causing problems late in the evening. Apparently resurfacing work was required to repair damaged (melted in a fire one would guess) tarmac. Sadly, as no south bound traffic had been allowed down the Birmingham stretch of the M6, traffic had ended up going down the M5 and then cross country. North was clear but traffic coming up the M5 faced long queues because of traffic backed up at exits jammed by the diverted traffic. Took me ages to get home. At least I had not had to be air lifted to hospital as had at least one person involved in the accident, so can’t complain much really.
