Tailbacks after three-car crash

Have your say

RUSH-hour traffic was delayed on the M1 after a crash involving three cars.

The smash happened at around 3.45pm yesterday when a silver Ford Mondeo, a black Audi and a white Audi collided between junction 34 of the motorway, near Meadowhall, and junction 35, at Thorpe Hesley.

No-one was injured but all three lanes were closed while the damaged vehicles were removed.

Motorists experienced queues after the motorway was reopened at 4.20pm.

Traffic queued down to junction 33 at Catcliffe, and a temporary speed limit of 40mph was put in place.

There were delays of up to 25 minutes
