A luxurious Lamborghini Aventador worth around £260,000 was destroyed in a motorway smash.

These pictures, which were taken around 4.40pm on Saturday, illustrate the massive amount of damage the supercar has suffered.

Resting on a grass verge, the whole right side of the expensive motor has been smashed in, its missing one whole section behind the door and the wing mirror is hanging off.

While it is unclear what happened, one onlooker said there had been a large downpour of rain before they passed the spot of the smash.

The accident happened on the the southbound carriageway of the M6, resulting in the lanes being closed for a period.

Traffic on the opposite side, already swollen by people travelling for half-term, suffered with large tailbacks.

A first response ambulance seen in attendance but it is unclear if there were any injuries sustained.
