Long delays on M1 after lorry and two car crash

Two lanes of the M1 are closed this morning after a collision between a lorry and two cars, causing long traffic delays.

The accident happened on the southbound carriageway between J25 and J24A, near East Midlands Airport.

The second and third lane of the motorway were closed, with travel delays of 90 minutes through the area. One of the closed lanes has just re-opened (just after 7.30am) but Highways England is still warning of severe delays on approach.

Energency services and recovery teams are at the scene and working hard to open the final closed lane. To keep up with all the latest news, please like our Facebook Page
