Derbyshire motorists who are heading out and about to celebrate New Years with friends and family will have road closures to watch out for over the coming days.

But the news isn't too bad, with all of them only expected to cause slight delays, of less than 10 minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that three closures already in place are expected to carry on in early January:

• M1, from 8pm December 9 2021 to 6am January 7 2022, slight delays (under 10 minutes): M1 northbound, Tibshelf Services to junction 29, Lane closure due to maintenance works.
