Devon M5 section closed after body found

The discovery of a body on the M5 motorway forced the closure of a section of road heading north out of Devon for several hours.

The motorway was shut between J29 to Exeter and J27 to Tiverton from about 02:30 BST as police investigated how the body got on the road, near Willand.

Officers said they were also trying to identify the man but investigations were continuing.

Devon and Cornwall Police have made an appeal for witnesses.
