We are appealing for witnesses following a fatal RTC this afternoon, Monday 7 December.
At around 3pm, emergency services were called to the M57 in Prescot to reports of a collision involving a Vauxhall Corsa between junction 4 and junction 3.
The driver of the Corsa, a man in his 30s, was sadly pronounced deceased at the scene. He will be formally identified and his next of kin informed.
The motorway will be closed for a considerable time and diversions are being put into place, so please avoid the area.
