M1 pile-up causes miles of tailbacks
A multi-vehicle collision on the M1 this morning is causing miles of tailbacks.
The pile-up, between Junction 40 for Ossett and 41 for Wakefield initially blocked three lanes and traffic was held while emergency services dealt with the incident.
Two lanes have since re-opened, but tailbacks of around seven miles have been reported.
Highways England said traffic is now moving slowly and recovery work is under way for the vehicles involved in the crash.
It has not yet been revealed whether anyone was injured in the collision.
