A Northamptonshire Police spokeswoman said: “This incident is a single-vehicle collision which involved a car pulling a caravan which has jack-knifed on the westbound carriage and collided with the central reservation barrier. It happened at about 12.30pm.”

Traffic has been stopped eastbound to allow for the caravan to be righted and for the vehicles to be recovered. Lane two on the westbound carriageway is also closed.
