Chief Inspector Henry Parsons, head of the Joint Operations Unit for Roads Policing, said, “Our thoughts are with anyone affected by this tragedy.

“Can I ask anyone who witnessed the collision, including anyone travelling on the southbound carriageway who saw anything they believe is significant, to contact police.”

The crash occurred between Chieveley and East Ilsley causing a six-mile tailback on the Northbound carriageway.

The Northbound reopened after over 12 hours whilst the Southbound carriageway was closed for about five hours.
