TWO drivers were taken to hospital and motorists experienced long tailbacks on the M1 motorway following a crash yesterday morning.

The smash happened on the southbound carriageway between junctions 33, near Catcliffe, and 32, at Thurcroft, at around 9.30am.

A Mercedes Sprinter van and a Volvo FL goods vehicle were involved in the collision.

Both drivers were taken to hospital for treatment and the first two lanes between both junctions were temporarily closed.

The lanes were re-opened a short time later.
