POLICE are appealing for information after a man died on an M1 slip road on Monday afternoon.

A lorry driver reported seeing a black Seat Leon car, down the banking off the southbound carriageway of the M1 motorway at the end of the slip road at Woodall Services, around 12.50pm.

When emergency services arrived a 42-year-old man from Eckington was found in the car and was unresponsive to medical treatment.

Police are appealing to anyone in the area at the time that may have seen the black car leave the carriageway or who saw it down the embankment.

Anyone with information is urged to call South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 425 of 16 July.
