Stuart Murphy, who was 39 and from the Huddersfield area, was driving an articulated lorry which was involved in the collision on the eastbound carriageway at about 2.30pm on Tuesday.

Police are continuing to appeal for dash cam footage of the collision, which appears to have occurred after a Ford Fiesta struck barriers and rebounded on to the carriageway, causing vehicles following to brake suddenly.
