Lorry travelling southbound on M5 just crossed central reservation into oncoming traffic.

Emergency services were called just after 14:30 BST to junctions 15 and 14 in Gloucestershire.

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

Four people are believed to have died and a number of others have been taken to hospitals in the Bristol area.

An image posted to Twitter showed a lorry, which had crashed off the northbound carriageway, surrounded by emergency service vehicles.

The motorway is closed in both directions after the crash, which happened at about 2.30pm on Saturday.

Highways England said traffic queues stretched for around six miles.

Dr Amer Hamed who was in a auto behind helped a GP and other medics tend to the injured woman before paramedics arrived six minutes later and rushed her to hospital.

Witnesses reported seeing people lying by the side of the road as members of the public helped pull survivors from wrecked cars, with some performing first aid. "One was completely wrecked and another had flipped over". "We're going to be stuck here for a few hours yet".

South Western Ambulance Service Trust said a dozen ambulances and a critical care team were working at the scene.

Interstates England said the "early desire" is that the M5 "will stay shut in the two bearings late into tonight".
