A broken down lorry in the roadworks section of the M1 in Northamptonshire is causing long delays for drivers.

One lane is currently closed northbound between junction 16 for Northampton west and junction 17 just past Watford Gap due to the broken down vehicle.

The vehicle can’t be moved on to a hard shoulder due to the ongoing roadworks taking place.

Congestion is currently back to junction 15a for Northampton.
