At least four people have died in a crash on the M5, police have said.

Emergency services were called just after 14:30 BST to junctions 15 and 14 in South Gloucestershire to a collision involving several vehicles including a lorry.

The motorway is closed in both directions and Avon and Somerset Police said it would be shut “for a considerable amount of time”.

The force asked drivers to avoid the area.
