Closures are expected to remain in place this afternoon and into this evening for repairs to the central barrier and the road surface, both of which were significantly damaged in the incident.face

Both vehicles involved have now been recovered, however clear-up and resurfacing work is expected to last throughout tonight and into Saturday 11 February. Further updates will be shared via news bulletins, social media channels and the traffic alerts website.

There are currently delays of around 20 minutes on the southbound carriageway. All traffic caught up within the closures in both directions has been released.

Northbound traffic is being diverted off the A1M at junction 51 and onto the A6055. Drivers are advised to continue for around six miles on the A6055 before rejoining the A1M at J52.

Drivers travelling southbound are advised to follow the same route, in reverse.
