Serious accident closes section A449 – live updates

Emergency services are dealing with a serious accident involving a car and lorry in Monmouthshire. The A449 is closed southbound between Usk and Newport.

Gwent Police say the road is closed and diversions are in place, which could lead to congestion. Traffic Wales has said the closure is expected to take place “most of the day”.

A statement read: “Please avoid the area if possible and find alternative routes for your journey. Be careful.”

Traffic monitoring system Inrix shows that it is closed between the Usk Interchange and junction 24 of the M4 at the Coldra.

A spokesman for the Welsh Ambulance Trust said he was called to the scene at 5.37am on Thursday.
