Emergency services were called at 2.07pm to reports of a four-vehicle collision between Junction 4 and Junction 5.

A rear seat passenger from a taxi involved in the collision – a man aged in his 60s - was taken to hospital with serious injuries, and has since died. His family are now being supported by specially trained officers and we ask that their privacy is respected at this time.

“We are trying to paint the complete picture of what happened and enquiries are ongoing. If you have any information, caught the incident on dash cam or were also on the motorway at the time and might have seen what happened, please call us to pass that on."

Anyone with information which could assist with our enquiries is asked to call 101, quoting incident number 461 of 6th October.
