A LORRY driver killed in a crash on the M50 could not be saved, the ambulance service has said. 

A man has died after a collision involving two lorries on the M50, which has closed the motorway since yesterday morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called at 10.54am to the eastbound stretch between junctions 2 and 1 near Tewkesbury and sent an ambulance, two paramedic officers, the trust’s hazardous area response team (HART) and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham to the scene.
