One person has sadly died following a serious collision on the M5.
Two cars were involved in the crash between junction 12 (Quedgeley / Hardwicke) and junction 11A (Gloucester / Cirencester) northbound at around 8.10am this morning.
An air ambulance attended the scene, but sadly one person was declared dead a short time later.
Officers are currently making contact with their next of kin so further details cannot be released at this time.
The driver of the other vehicle suffered non-serious injuries but is being checked over at hospital.
The northbound carriageway remains closed between junction 12 and junction 11A while a serious collision investigation takes place.
