The road was closed between Junction 6 and 7 in both directions to allow two air ambulances to land, and screens were used to protect members of the public from witnessing the scene.

The northbound carriageway was closed for most of the afternoon while traffic officers and police dealt with recovery, and a diversion route was put in place.

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward. Anyone with information is asked to call the non-emergency number 101, quoting ISR 259 of January 11.
