British emergency services scramble to rescue motorists trapped in vehicles along the M5 motorway near Bridgwater, in Somerset early on Saturday.
The deadly motorway crash halted traffic late on Friday, killing several and injuring dozens of others.
Police say some passengers were left trapped in their burning cars and had to be cut out by emergency services.
The crash involved around 27 vehicles, including several articulated lorries, triggering a raging fire on the carriageway.

"We just saw flames coming up out of all the trucks, and it sort of got bigger and bigger, up to about 20 to 30 feet high.
Avon and Somerset Police reported around 35 people were injured.
