Blockage on M1 due to shed load of car windscreens

There is a blockage on M1 Northbound in Derbyshire after a shed load of windscreen were strewn across all three lanes.

It means there was a rolling road block between J30 A616 / A6135 (Worksop / Sheffield South) and J31 A57 (Sheffield / Worksop), while the debris was cleared.

One lane is now open.

With many Derby County fans heading up the motorway for their match with Hull City tonight, it could mean lengthy delays.
