Chief Superintendent Jim Allen, area commander for the south of the county said: “I’m very grateful for the patience and understanding of the many thousands of people affected by this incident. Closing a motorway is not a decision taken lightly at any time. In a fast-moving situation, with several scenes of crime, the death of two people and another seriously injured, it was vitally important that officers established whether any other people were involved. We can now confirm that at this time we are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident, which involved people who were related to each other.”
Inquests into the deaths were opened on Tuesday 20th December by HM Coroner Dr Robert Hunter.
