Derby County are top of the Championship tonight after a two nil victory against Hull City.

Both goals were scored by Jacob Butterfield in what was Derby's eighth win in ten league games.

Travel: Delays this evening on M1, M5 and M6

There are delays on motorways across the Midlands this evening.

M1 Northbound - Derbyshire

Two lanes are closed causing traffic queues between Junction 30 A616 / A6135 (Worksop / Sheffield South) and Junction 31 A57 (Sheffield / Worksop).

M5 Northbound - Worcestershire

There is slow traffic due to an earlier accident on Junction 6 (Worcester) and Junction 5 (Droitwich / Wychbold). All lanes have been re-opened but there is still congestion up to Junction 7.

M6 Northbound - West Midlands

One lane is blocked and there is heavy traffic due to a broken down vehicle between Junction 5 A452 (Castle Bromwich) and Junction 6 A38(M) Aston Expressway Spaghetti Junction.


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.
