A CAR left on its roof after a crash on the M5 near Taunton earlier.

The incident, on the southbound carriageway, happened between junctions 24 (Bridgwater) and 25 (Taunton) shortly before 7pm.

The motorway was closed for a short period after the crash, but re-opened at around 7.30pm.

It happened in the roadworks area, a Highways England spokesperson said.

Traffic is now moving well.
