The M4 eastbound is shut between J24 for Newport east and J23A for Magor and Llandevenny in south Wales. Emergency services have dashed to the crash near J23A but say the three lanes will be closed for some time yet.  

Tailbacks have reached J25 for Newport central and St Julians – around an eight mile stretch.

Traffic is busy westbound too due to onlookers. Queues have reached J23, the M48 link near Llanfihangel Rogiet.

Diversions, including the A48 eastbound, are congested as a result of the collision, Wales Online reports.

Local roads in central Newport are also busy.

The B4245 is slow through Magor as some westbound drivers leave the motorway near Caldicot.

It’s understood the caravan has overturned in the crash. 

Emergency services are at the scene but it is unclear if there are any injuries.
