The M1 was closed northbound in Nottinghamshire after a fire on a lorry carrying 1,000 crates of pre-packed food.

It happened at about 03:00 GMT at Trowell services near junction 25 to Nottingham and Derby.

The service station and at least one lane remained shut for most of the morning but fully reopened later.

Traffic was diverted through Nottingham, causing problems on the bus network during rush-hour.
