Detectives are appealing to speak to anyone who may have witnessed a fatal collision on the M1 yesterday (7 September).
The incident happened around 3.25pm on the northbound carriageway of the motorway – between junction 20 and 21.
It involved one vehicle – a red Nissan Micra - which collided with a barrier.
Emergency crews attended the scene but the driver - a man in his 20s - was pronounced dead at the scene.
Both sides of the carriageway were closed while the incident was dealt with but was reopened a few hours later.
Detectives investigating the incident are looking to speak to anyone who may have seen the car prior to the collision, as well as access to any dashcam footage.
DC Anna Thorpe, from the force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “We have already spoken to a few people who saw the collision but I am keen to speak to anyone who saw the red Micra travelling along the M1 before the incident occurred.
“If you saw the vehicle or were travelling along that stretch of the M1 shortly before 3.25pm and have a dashcam, please take a look to see if you have captured anything that could be of use to our investigation.”
