TRAFFIC: M1 lanes re-open but expect miles of tailbacks


All lanes have been reopened on the M1 southbound following a car fire, but expect tailbacks.

Two lanes were closed for around two hours after the blaze broke out on the southbound carriageway at around 11.30am and fire crews had to bring it under control.

However, traffic is still backed up to Junction 27, Hucknall, so drivers are being urged to avoid the area if possible.
