Police say a man who plunged to his death from a motorway bridge in Rainhill yesterday was aged 41 and from the local area.

However, the man has yet to be formally identified although a police spokesman said his next of kin had been notified.

The M62 westbound was closed yesterday following the incident.

All lanes of the motorway were closed when a man died after falling from a bridge at the junction of Hall Lane, between junction six and seven in Knowsley, with the air ambulance, rapid response and police on the scene.
