Nine die in road accidents

NINE people have died in overnight road accidents on two of Britain's busiest roads

NINE people have been left dead after accidents on two of the busiest roads in the country.

Six people died in two road accidents on the M6 in Cheshire overnight.

That accident came after three people died in an accident on the A52 in Derbyshire.

Two adults and three children were in the same vehicle which burst into flames after it was involved in a multi-vehicle accident on the M6.

Their deaths followed an earlier fatal accident on the motorway. A lorry driver, believed to be a Spanish national, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

Two men in a Vauxhall Corsa and a 12-year-old girl who was a passenger in a Volkwagen Passat died when their vehicles were in collision on the A52.
