A lorry driver has died in a crash on the M6 in Stafford.

The man's vehicle left the carriageway near junction 12 earlier this afternoon.

The southbound carriageway was closed at junction 13 - it has now reopened.

Police are appealing for witnesses.

Crews arrived to find a lorry which had left the carriageway and was on its side down an embankment. Sadly, ambulance staff were unable to save the driver of the lorry, a man, and he was confirmed dead on scene a short time later.
