Plans to reduce the speed limit on the M1 have been scrapped by Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin.

The Highways Agency carried out a public consultation earlier this year on whether the speed limit should be dropped to 60mph between junction 28 at Mansfield and junction 35A at Sheffield and Rotherham.

It was intended the lower limit would have been introduced next year and run between 7am and 7pm each day in a bid to reduce air pollution.
