DRIVERS on the M5 are facing an hour of delays as they travel through Somerset.

The county council's highways department is reporting stop-start traffic between junction 25, at Taunton, and junction 27, at Tiverton.

The slow traffic is being caused by a broken down camper van.

The delays are currently affecting drivers travelling in both directions.

There are seperate delays north of Taunton due to ongoing roadworks, with narrow lanes and a 50mph speed limit in place.

UPDATE: Traffic has now returned to normal
