THE M4 was closed in both directions this morning after a man was spotted on an overbridge.

Both eastbound and westbound carriages were closed for approximately 40 minutes between junctions 15 and 14.

Police were called to a bridge between the two junctions at approximately 8am following reports that a driver had spotted a man on one of the bridges.

There was a minor collision on the motorway at the same time, but nobody was injured.

The man came down from the bridge at approximately 8.35am and the motorway was reopened.

Drivers should expect delays in the area.
