MOTORISTS suffered delays this morning, Tuesday, October 23, after a heavy goods vehicle leaked diesel across the southbound carriageway of the M1 motorway near Bolsover.

The diesel spillage happened about 6.20am, today, and Staveley firefighters were called out to stop and clear the potential danger for other motorists.

A Derbyshire fire service spokesman said: “Lane one of the carriageway had to be closed and the Highways Agency was also in attendance to monitor the situation.”
