Lorry driver found dead on hard shoulder of M4

A lorry driver has been found dead in his vehicle on the hard shoulder of a motorway junction near Swansea.

Police are investigating following the discovery of the 49-year-old man's body around 0400 BST following concerns from his employer.

His lorry was found stationary on the westbound hard shoulder of junction 47 of the M4 Penllergaer services.

Police say they are not treating the death of the man, from the Gloucester area, as suspicious.

South Wales Police are liaising with Gloucestershire Police to notify his next of kin.

The vehicle has since been removed.
