Motorists travelling on a Sheffield stretch of motorway this afternoon have been thanked for their patience, after many experienced delays while police attempted to help a vulnerable person. 

The incident took place near to the exit of Junction 34 on the M1 at Sheffield. 

A spokesman for Highways England said on Twitter: “You may have just been held up in a block and seen 20mph speeds in place.

“With the help of South Yorkshire Police Operational Support we have helped a vulnerable person off the motorway to get the help they need. 

“Thanks for your patience and understanding.”
