Reporter George Torr, at the scene, said: "Traffic has moved about 100 yards in five minutes. It's bumper to bumper and there are pretty serious delays."

The traffic is thought to be caused by repairs to a motorway bridge, meaning that the M1 northbound is down to a single lane between Catcliffe and Meadowhall.
