A man has been crushed to death between two lorries in a Leicestershire layby, police have said.

The 30-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene on the A4303 near Lutterworth on Saturday.

A 36-year-old man was arrested the following day for a driving offence and has since been released on bail.

Highways England said the westbound side was closed between junction 20 of the M1 and the Frank Whittle roundabout for several hours after the crash.

Leicestershire Police have appealed for witnesses to contact them.
