A WOMAN killed when she fell from a bridge over the M5 motorway at Weston has not yet been formally identified.

The woman, who is believed to be aged 42 and from the town, fell to her death from the bridge over the carriageway at junction 21 just before 11pm on June 2.

All three lanes of the southbound 
carriageway at the junction were closed for several hours while police carried out an investigation.

This week, a police spokesman said the woman’s death was not being treated as suspicious.

The woman, who died from her injuries at the junction, has not yet been formally identified.

Officers at Flax Bourton Coroner’s Court said once her body was identified an inquest into how she died would be opened.

Police are appealing for anyone who saw the woman fall to call them on 0845 4567000.
