A woman killed after a lorry overturned on the M32 in Bristol has been named as "selfless, loyal and loving" Lorraine Mckeag.

Mrs Mckeag, 60, lived in the Somerset village of Dundry with her husband, whom she cared for after a stroke, and lost in November 2012.

In an emotional tribute released today she is described by her family as kind, popular and active in her community.

Her son James is running the Paris, Manchester and London marathons in memory of his mother, to raise money for the Stroke Association.

Donations can be made here.

Lorraine will be missed immensely by her son, sister, family and friends and will be remembered as a wonderful cook, who would welcome anyone and everyone into both her home and life with open arms.

The most selfless, loyal and loving character imaginable, she tackled life's difficulties with a rare and at times unbelievable determination, always putting the happiness and wellbeing of others above her own.

To know her was an absolute joy, and it will bring sadness to the many people around the world who had the privilege of knowing her.

ROADS: Delays on the M32 in both directions

One lane is closed on the M32 into Bristol due to resurfacing work between J2 (Eastville) and J3 (St Pauls). It's causing congestion as far as J1 (Hambrook).

Meanwhile on the M32 northbound there's slow traffic between J3 (St Pauls) and J2 (Eastville). It's also causing congestion on the A4032 between Newfoundland St and New Bond St. That's following an earlier accident although all lanes have now re-opened.
