AN 18-year-old male driver has died following a crash on the M4 in the early hours of this morning.

Officers were called to the single vehicle collision at around 1.30am.

The BMW was travelling westbound when it collided with a crash barrier on the central reservation between Membury Services and Junction 15.

A 19-year-old female passenger was taken to the Great Western Hospital with minor injuries.

Both west and eastbound carriageways were closed while officers carried out their investigations - however eastbound has just been re-opened and westbound is expected to be open in the next half an hour.
