The 24-year-old is thought to have been on the bridge, on School Lane, above the motorway near junction 31 and Woodall services.

A police spokesperson said: “He was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. His family has been informed and are receiving support from specially trained officers.

“The northbound carriageway was closed to allow investigations to take place but has since been re-opened. 

“Police are now keen to hear from any motorists who may have been travelling on the M1 this morning who witnessed the incident, as well as those motorists who may hold dashcam footage.”

Call 101 quoting incident 97 of April 15. Dashcam footage can be emailed to enquiries@southyorks.pnn.police.uk.
