Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision on the M5.

At around 8am, a lorry travelling northbound on the M5, having just joined from the M4, overturned onto the central reservation.

Sadly, the driver of the lorry has died from their injuries and the police will be deploying specialist officers to support their next of kin.

The M5 is currently closed both north and southbound between J14 Thornbury and J15 Almondsbury Interchange.

A significant closure is expected due to the investigation ongoing at the scene, the work required to recover the lorry from the carriageway and the emergency repair work to be carried out by Highways England.

Diversions are in place. If your journey is essential, please try to avoid this area and use alternative routes.

If you saw this collision and haven’t yet spoken with the police, please call on 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5221011328.
