Seven killed in UK motorway tragedy

AT least seven people are dead and 51 injured in a multiple car collision/pile-up that threatens to become the worst motorway accident the United Kingdom has ever seen.

The UK's Guardian news website reports drivers and passengers were burned alive in a pile-up on the M5 near Bridgewater in Somerset on Saturday night.

Assistant chief constable of Avon and Somerset police Anthony Bangham told the Guardian the number of people killed would rise as officers searched wrecked and burnt-out vehicles.

The lorries and cars smashed on the northbound carriageway were "burned literally to the ground," he told the paper.
