A pedestrian on a motorway has died after a collision in Northern Ireland.

A lorry was involved in the accident on Wednesday afternoon on the M1 near its Lurgan junction in Co Armagh.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) is appealing for witnesses.

PSNI Inspector Gary Irvine said: “The single-vehicle collision involving a lorry occurred around 450pm eastbound on the M1, just past the Lurgan junction. There were no reports of any other injuries.

“We are working to establish what happened and we are keen to speak to anyone who saw a Black Saab Vector on the M1 travelling eastbound before the collision was reported. We are also keen to hear from anyone who saw a male on the M1 in this area prior to the collision.”

The westbound motorway lanes were closed but have since reopened.

Junctions 10 and 9 remain closed eastbound and traffic is being diverted through Lurgan.
