The Prince of Wales bridge has re-opened after a lorry driver veered of the motorway near the bridge and died.

Due to the extensive damage caused to the bridge, the westbound carriageway wasn't able to re-open until the early hours of this morning.

Highways crews worked through the night to repair the central reservation barrier and install a temporary specialist barrier on the nearside.

The closure caused traffic chaos for a large amount of commuters, with up to six mile delays on both sides of the bridge, and some motorists reporting being stuck in traffic for almost three hours.
