Traffic officers from Highways England attended the M1 southbound J29A-J30 just before 9am to remove the red canoe which was blocking the outside lane.

There was a short hold up of traffic before the item was removed.

A tweet from the Highways England Twitter account said: “#M1 southbound J30 - J29A .... 1 canoe now cleared from outside lane after short hold of traffic .. safe onward journey.”
