Commuters were faced with delays of nine miles after a van and three cars crashed on the M40 this morning. 

The crash happened on the southbound carriageway at junction 4 for Handy Cross, with congestion back to junction 5 for Stokenchurch.

The crash also affected traffic on the A404 and the A4010 heading towards the M40. 

Two lanes out of three were shut off by the emergency services until just before 8.25am, but they have all since reopened. 

However, travel time following the crash is currently an hour and 10 minutes.
