Highways England this morning warned drivers of delays and miles-long tailbacks due to a collision and spillage on the M1 southbound.

Lanes were closed on the north and southbound sides of the M1 near J30 near Worksop.

There was congestion tailing back for 6.5 miles back to J31 on the southbound side and that journey times increased by around an hour.
