The government's urging people not to "jump to conclusions" over the cause of the fatal crash on the M5 on Friday evening. Seven people died and 51 were injured in a pile up involving 34 vehicles

Police say there was a "bank of smoke" across the road at the time, a firework display at the nearby Taunton Rugby club is a "major line of inquiry"

The conservative MP for Hemel and transport Minister, Mike Penning thinks it's too early to say what caused the crash in which 34 vehicles collided, causing a huge fireball.

It's one of the worst motorway accidents to happen in Britain over the last 20 years and is, naturally, raising issues about motorway safety.
