IT'S Friday, it's the weekend, but - if your route back from work is anything like mine is usually - that comes with the obligatory heavy traffic on the way home.

And aside from the rush-hour traffic, there have been a few incidents on the road to look out for this afternoon, so stay safe.

In Bromsgrove, the Worcester Road both ways is partially blocked with very slow traffic due to accident near Sanders Road. The accident is near to Broad Street DIY.

There's heavy traffic along the A456 Manor Way in Halesowen so watch out for this route.

An accident has been cleared on A4037 Tipton Road between A459 Castle Hill / A461 Dudley Southern By-Pass (Castle Gate Island) and A4123 Birmingham New Road in Dudley.

The crash is reported to be near to the Black County Living Museum, but traffic has now returned to normal.
