9:15 pm on 25 May 2013

The M6 motorway in England is open again after an incident involving a suspicious vehicle at a service station on Friday.

The incident was at Coventry, north-west of London, and a section of the motorway was closed at 2.30pm BST.

The Highways Agency said a suspicious vehicle was parked at Corley service station, a rest area north of Coventry.

Police said two men ran from the scene across fields. One was arrested and police are still looking for the other.

A bomb disposal team has examined a white transit van and declared it safe.

The BBC reports the incident is now being treated as a bulk fuel theft.
