The M3 was closed in both directions in Surrey this morning after a man’s body was found with commuters stuck in 10 mile tailbacks. Police were called to Junction 3 in Lightwater at 4.50am sealing off the motorway and putting a diversion in place.

A Surrey Police spokesperson said: “It is believed that the body had been there for a number of hours and had not been discovered earlier due to overnight closures. The death is not thought to be suspicious. The man has yet to be formally identified, but his family have been informed.”

Drivers were told to avoid the area with police warning of two hour delays.
