NEWS: Firework smoke was not to blame for one of Britain's worst motorway pile-ups in which seven people died, a coroner has ruled.
Seven people died and 51 were injured during a series of collisions between 34 vehicles on the south-bound carriageway of the M5 near Taunton, Somerset, on the evening of November 4 2011.
The pile-up happened at 8.20pm - just five minutes after a £3,000 fireworks display operated by Geoffrey Counsell had finished only 200ft away at Taunton rugby club.
West Somerset coroner Michael Rose said he could not rule out the possibility that the smoke had mixed with thick fog and maybe further reduced motorists' visibility.
Mr Rose said he was considering using his powers to make recommendations to ensure crashes like this did not happen again.
