Part of the M5 in Devon was closed yesterday after a fatal accident involving a pedestrian and a lorry. A local man in his sixties died after being in collision with the lorry, between junction 30 and 31, near Exeter, at about 11am. All three northbound lanes were briefly closed for an aerial investigation of the scene. Police said yesterday they were still trying to contact the dead man's family. An investigation is continuing into how he came to be on the road. The Highways Agency said there were delays on the motorway's northbound carriageway, while motorists reported "severe" disruption.
