The M5 has now fully reopened following this morning's fatal crash.

Two cars were involved in the crash between junction 12 (Quedgeley / Hardwicke) and junction 11A (Gloucester / Cirencester) northbound at around 8.10am this morning.

An air ambulance attended the scene, but a woman from Gloucester was declared dead a short time later.

Her next of kin have been informed.

The driver of the other vehicle suffered non-serious injuries.

All lanes, including the entry slip road at junction 12, are now open but there is currently 4-miles of slow moving traffic and 30 minute delays on the approach.

Any witnesses who haven't yet contacted police should call 101 and quote incident 67 of January 2.
