We have finished investigation work at the scene and are now clearing the carriageway between J25 and J26.
As such, we expect the southbound carriageway will be reopened by 4pm.
There are a number of vehicles that require moving off the northbound carriageway and we will provide timescales on reopening these lanes as soon as we can.
We’d like to thank the public for their patience and understanding while we carried out our work at what was a complex scene where sadly one person died and two were seriously injured.
There is likely to be continued congestion when the carriageway reopens and so we’re urging drivers to consider their journey and alternative routes.
We’ll be issuing the latest information on our Twitter feed @ASPolice
