Were you on the M1 last night around 10.30 pm?

Detectives are asking for any motorists who saw a white Mercedes Sprinter van on the M1 last night (Wednesday 3 April) to come forward, after a man dies on the M1.

At around 10.30pm, police received information that the van had been found on the hard shoulder of the northbound carriageway, between junction 22, for Markfield and junction 23, for Shepshed.

When officers arrived, a man was found trapped between the van and the barrier. He was pronounced dead at the scene. There were no other people with the vehicle.

We’re asking for anyone who was travelling on the M1, especially on the northbound side, to come forward if you saw a white Mercedes van on the hard shoulder.

Did you notice anything untoward or did you see the vehicle prior to it stopping? If you have a dashcam in your vehicle, please check it for any footage it may have recorded.

If you have any information, please private message us, quoting incident 737 of 3 April.
