The second of three men killed in crash on the M4 in Wiltshire on Monday has been named by police.

Five men were travelling in a van which collided with a lorry on the hard shoulder near Chippenham at 04:30 BST.

James Stark, 37, of Mountain Ash, Rhondda Cynon Taf was among those killed, police said. A fourth man is in hospital in a critical condition.

A 37-year-old man from Aberdare was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

He has been released on police bail until August pending further inquiries.

On Thursday, one of the victims was named as Martin Williams, 36, from Trecynon in Rhondda Cynon Taf.

Formal identification of the third victim is likely to be concluded in the next few days, police said.

The M4 westbound was closed for a total of nine hours while the vehicles were recovered.
