M5 motorway closed at Gloucester after body discovered.


Officers have closed the M5 between junction 11A at Brockworth and junction 12 for Quedgeley after a person was found dead on the carriageway.

The incident was reported shortly before 4.10am today (Wednesday 30 October).

Officers attended the scene, on the southbound carriageway around a mile north of Gloucester Services,  and have closed both sides of the motorway while the body is recovered and a serious incident investigation takes place.

Diversions have been put in place but significant disruption is expected this morning and is likely to last for a number of hours while police continues its work at the scene and establishes the circumstances.

Anyone who may have information but hasn't spoken to police should call 101 and quote incident 34 of 30 October.
