All traffic is held on the M6 Northbound while emergency repairs take place.
Highways England are holding all traffic before Junction 13.
They started holding traffic from around 4.30pm.
It is so they can make emergency repairs to pot holes, but it is unclear how long this will take.
Traffic monitoring company Inrix states: “All traffic being temporarily held and stationary traffic due to emergency repairs on M6 Northbound before J13 A449 (Stafford South).
“At around 16:30 all traffic was held to assist with emergency pot hole repairs.”
