Two men who died following a collision on the M1 earlier this month have been named.
Antony Richard West, 53, from Buckingham and 57-year-old Andrew William Chevis from Banbury, died in the collision which took place at 4.10pm on Tuesday 4 July on the southbound carriageway between junctions 20 and 19.
