The family of a Gunnislake dad who died in a motorway crash are given some answers.

Kye Thomas was among seven people who lost their lives on the M5 in November 2011.

37 vehicles collided in what has been described as Britain's worst motorway pile-up.

Survivors told an inquest in Taunton they drove into fog so thick it was like paint.

The coroner has ruled out smoke from a nearby firework display as the cause.

A final verdict is due later on Thursday.
