Belfast's M2 motorway has reopened following a man's death on Friday morning.

Inspector Rosemary Leech, from PSNI Road Policing, apologised for the severe disruption that followed.

"The problem is that we don't get a second chance to go back to that scene and if there is evidence scattered across a number of lanes we can't go back after the event to try and retrieve that, we only get one chance at this," she said.

"So I really am sorry that people have been inconvenienced."
