Police have confirmed the lorry driver who tragically died on the A1(M) northbound at junction 8 this morning had possibly been going to help a driver who had lost control of their car and crashed.

Officers confirmed this afternoon that the car driver had lost control of their vehicle as it entered the motorway and after striking motorway material, believed to be a lamp post, the vehicle came to rest on the hard shoulder.

"It seems the lorry driver had got out of his vehicle when he was struck by another car," said a police spokesman.

Police are unlikely to confirm any more details about the tragedy until later today.
