A man has died in a crash on a bridge on a motorway in Merseyside.

Police said they were called at about 04:00 BST after a Honda car hit a barrier on the Moreton Spur slip road, next to the M53 southbound in Wirral.

The driver of the car, Clifford Holmes, 50, died at the scene.

The motorway was shut in both directions between junctions 1 and 3 for several hours after the crash. It reopened shortly after 13:00 BST but the slip road remains shut.
