Police close motorway to deal with suspicious vehicle

LONDON (Reuters) - British police closed one of the country’s busiest motorways in both directions on Friday to deal with an incident which highway officials said involved a suspicious vehicle.

“We are dealing with a major incident,” a spokesman for Warwickshire Police said after police closed part of the M6 motorway which forms the backbone of Britain’s road system.

A spokesman for the Highways Agency said a suspicious vehicle was currently parked at Corley service station, a rest area north of Coventry.
