There were severe delays on the motorway near Sheffield and South Yorkshire in both directions this evening after a crash and a breakdown.

UPDATE: Traffic has now returned to normal across the M1 motorway.

On the M1 southbound between J35 A629 (Rotherham / Chapeltown) and J34 A631 (Meadowhall), an accident between two lorries and a car was causing long delays and major disruption.

On the M1 Northbound, between Junction 34 (A631 Meadowhall) and Junction 35 (A629 Rotherham) a lane was blocked due to a broken down lorry.
