The lorry is said to have crossed the central reservation from the southbound and collided with oncoming traffic on the northbound carriageway.

The motorway was closed in both directions between junctions 16 and 14 in Gloucestershire after the accident at 2.30pm.

Emergency Services say the road is likely to stay closed for a considerable time.

"Something must have happened and the lorry came across and suddenly the cars stopped", said Katie Sultana, an eyewitness.

He was one of the first at the scene alongside a passing GP and different doctors to help a harmed lady who was in one of the autos.

Highways England stated there was six miles of traffic congested northbound of the closure, and two miles stretching southbound.
