Motorists are being reminded of the dangers of stopping on the hard shoulder of motorways.

It comes as research suggests more than 800 people a year have been killed or injured in such incidents since 2000.

BBC Breakfast spoke to drivers at a service station and Tracey Hepworth whose fiancé was killed in a collision on the hard shoulder on the M62 in 1998.

Ms Hepworth said drivers should only use the lane in an emergency and that no-one should remain in the vehicle once it has been parked.
