M1 accident causes traffic chaos


Three lanes of the southbound M1 have been blocked after an accident.

The accident happened a short time ago between junctions 27 (Hucknall) and 26 (Nottingham Kimberley).

Long delays are expected and normal traffic conditions are not expected to return until midday at the earliest.

Driving conditions on the motorway have been made worse this morning by heavy rain and surface water.
