Two men who died after a crash on the M62 in East Yorkshire have been identified by police.

Brandon Bishton, 30, of Selston, Nottinghamshire, and Melvin Milan, 46 of Chesterfield, Derbyshire, died when their pick-up truck was hit by a lorry.

The accident happened near Goole on Friday, when the pick-up truck was parked on the hard shoulder.

The lorry driver was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He has been released on bail.

Police said Mr Bishton had died at the scene. Mr Milan was taken by air ambulance to hospital, where he died.

The eastbound carriageway of the motorway was closed between junctions 35 and 36 for 11 hours after the crash.

Humberside police have appealed for witnesses to the crash to contact the force.

They particularly want to speak to the driver of a light-coloured van which briefly stopped at the scene before leaving.
