Pedestrian struck and killed by lorry on M40 in Oxfordshire

A pedestrian has been hit and killed by a lorry on the M40 in Oxfordshire.

The motorway was closed northbound between junctions 8a at Oxford and 9 at Bicester. The man died at the scene and an air ambulance was in attendance.

The crash had led to queuing traffic and congestion to junction 7 of the A40 at Thame.

All lanes have now reopened following the earlier closure and delays are clearing, the Highways Agency said.
