Drivers faced severe delays on the M1 in Northamptonshire again this morning following a multi-vehicle accident.

Two lanes were closed by emergency services on the M1 northbound between junction 16 for Northampton and junction 17 for Dunchurch.

A number of vehicles have been involved in an accident on that stretch of the motorway which currently has no hard shoulder due to ongoing roadworks.

All lanes have now reopened and traffic has returned to normal.
