Derbyshire drivers have been warned of heavy traffic and delays on M1 Southbound.

Highways England report that the entry slip at junction J29A Southbound on M1 is currently closed. This is due to a broken down lorry and shed load on the motorway.

Traffic monitoring website Inrix has reported heavy traffic is building up on M1 Northbound between J29A A6192 Erin Road (Markham Vale / Bolsover) to J30 A616 (Worksop / Sheffield South).

Highways England predict that the entry slip will reopen after 1pm.
