A Banbury man has been named as one of two people killed in a crash on the M1.

57 year old Andrew Chevis died when two cars and a lorry collided between junctions 20 and 19 near Lutterworth.

53 year old Antony West from Buckingham was also killed when the crash happened on the southbound carriageway on the afternoon of July the 4th.
