"We would like to thank those motorists who were unfortunately caught up in the congestion for their patience, the closure was necessary to allow for the vehicles to be recovered and officers to carry out a full investigation at the scene. We would urge anyone who was travelling along the M6 this morning to contact us if they witnessed the collision or the events leading up to it."
The M6 at Catthorpe interage has reopened following a serious crash. One person has died, according to Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.
