Investigating officers are appealing for witnesses to the collision which happened at 7.12am on Wednesday 10 April.

The man’s Peugeot Boxer van was travelling south between junction 35 and 34 when it’s believed it collided with the central reservation before swerving across the carriageway towards the hard shoulder. The van then overturned on top of the crash barrier.

Despite efforts from the public, the police and paramedics to revive him, the driver was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident resulted in both sides of the motorway being closed, the southbound side for a number of hours.

The family of the driver has been notified.

Officers are asking the public to refrain from posting speculation or potentially distressing content about the collision online.
