M5 closed following fatal collision

 

A multi-agency operation is under way on the M5 in South Gloucestershire following a serious collision.

Avon and Somerset Police were called at just after 2.30pm to the collision between J15 and J14 northbound involving several vehicles, including a lorry.

Sadly, at least four people have died.

The motorway is closed in both directions between J16 and 14 and emergency services are working at the scene.

The closure is likely to be in place for a considerable amount of time and police ask people to avoid the area.
