Motorists are being warned that a lorry fire on the M1 is causing delays.

The northbound carriageway is moving slowly because of the fire close to Woodall Services.

Traffic is already slow around the Nottinghamshire section of the M1, but is coming to standstill in Derbyshire and South Yorkshire.

The road is also slowing down on the southbound carriageway because of smoke blowing across the roads.
