THE M5 motorway has been re-opened after a man was struck by a lorry and killed this morning.
The incident happened about 7.40am between junctions 5 (Droitwich) and 6 (Warndon).
Police closed the southbound carriageway for almost four hours causing huge tailbacks but all lanes were re-opened just after 11am.
Motorists are being warned there are likely to be long traffic queues and delays for the next couple of hours.
A spokeswoman from West Mercia Police confirmed the force's death investigation team had attended the scene as well as fire and ambulance crews.
The man has not yet been formally identified.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: "On arrival at the scene crews found a man and a lorry that had been in collision.
"Unfortunately it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed deceased at the scene."
Any witnesses who have not already spoken to police are asked to contact the Central Motorway Police Group on 0121 626 1289.
