Drivers on part of the M1 northbound faced long delays after a crash involving three lorries.

A vehicle collided with a broken-down lorry between junctions 29A and 30 at about 05:50 GMT. There followed several other crashes on the same stretch of motorway.

There were no serious injuries, but three lanes northbound between Chesterfield and Worksop were closed.

All lanes have since reopened, with traffic back to normal.
