Highways England has re-opened a stretch of the motorway which was closed off following a serious crash today (October 24).

The Southbound carriageway of the M1 between J27 for Annesley and J28 for Alfreton was closed off after a collision which took place about midday.

The Northbound carriageway was also blocked due to an emergency air ambulance landing, but re-opened just after 1pm.

When do the clocks go back?

UPDATE: M1 closed after serious crash

Heavy traffic was built up in the area and a diversion was put in place.

A Highways England spokesman said the congestion is now starting to clear.
