    The man who died following the collision on the M4 yesterday morning has been confirmed as a 63-year-old man from Oxfordshire.

    He was pronounced dead at the scene following a collision between two lorries at about 8.45am on the eastbound section of the M4 between junctions 21-20.

    A MAN lorry was climbing the hill towards junction 20 when it collided with a number of vehicles in the same carriageway before colliding with another lorry (a Mercedes 1840).

    As well as the two lorries, six other vehicles were involved.

    No-one in the six vehicles suffered major injuries, the driver Mercedes was not injured but the driver of the MAN lorry was declared dead at the scene.

    Police closed the motorway to enable a full examination of the scene to be carried out by collision investigators who have renewed their appeal for witnesses.

    Anyone able to help is asked to contact the force's collision investigation unit on the force number 101 or on-line using the following link http://tinyurl.com/bwuaxaw
