Highways England temporarily shut off one lane of the motorway while recovery workers made their way to the scene.
The vehicle has now been removed from Junction 30 on the M1 northbound, after it broke down in the live lane and all lanes are now reopen.
Traffic appears to be free-flowing according to the latest Highways England updates, despite the incident.
