GLASGOW: Four people have died in a crash on the M5.
Police said a lorry travelling southbound crashed through the central reservation and hit at least two vehicles heading the opposite way.
A woman and two children were also injured in the crash and taken to hospitals in Bristol, where they are in a life-threatening condition.
Emergency services were called just after 14:30 BST on Saturday to junctions 15 and 14 in Gloucestershire.
The lorry driver was taken to hospital to be checked over as a precaution.
The motorway was shut for hours after the crash in both directions between junctions 16 and 14 to allow the recovery operation and investigations to be carried out.
The southbound side of the carriageway reopened at about 05:30.
Highways England said it expected the northbound side to remain shut throughout Sunday.
