A body has been found on the M5 motorway, closing a 10-mile stretch of the road.
It was discovered on the southbound carriageway shortly after 04:00 GMT resulting in the motorway being closed in both directions in Gloucestershire.
The M5 is shut between junction 11A at Brockworth and junction 12 for Quedgeley while officers “recover the body and establish circumstances”.
Diversions have been put in place but “significant disruption” is expected.
The slip road at junction 11 southbound has also been closed.
