An inquest is opening into the death of a Gunnislake lorry driver in the M5 crash.

Kye Thomas was one of seven who lost their lives in the pile-up near Taunton.

Another driver working for the company that owns Callington's Ginsters also lost his life.

The investigation to work out what caused the crash could take weeks to complete.

On Friday families and survivors are expected to gather alongside the motorway to pay their respects, exactly a week since it happened.

Transport Secretary Justine Greening said, "Given the large number of vehicles involved, the need to carefully look at those vehicles and, of course, to talk to many of the witnesses it may be some weeks until the investigation can conclude on any cause or causes of this incident.

"The UK has a proud tradition as a world leader on road safety and that is a tradition I am determined to continue. I will be considering carefully our forward plans to make sure we have the right measures in place to deliver real and urgent progress in tackling the continuing blight of death and injury on our roads."
