Police have closed a number of roads in the Hilton area of Derbyshire following a serious collision this afternoon.

Derby Road and Uttoxeter Road are both closed from the junction with Eggington Road to the junction with Mill Lane.

The closure is likely to remain in place for some time and motorists are advised to avoid the area.

It is also likely to have an impact on traffic leaving the A50 at the Hilton/Etwall exit and officers are urging drivers to plan alternative routes.

ROADS: M1 - SOUTHBOUND - DERBYSHIRE

There is slow traffic and one lane closed due to a broken down lorry on M1 Southbound before J25 for the A52 Brian Clough Way (Nottingham / Derby).
