The M1 is closed Southbound with traffic queueing. It's due to a clean up operation which is underway to remove debris thought to be hanging down from an overhead gantry between J26 A610 Nottingham and Eastwood and J25 A52 Brian Clough Way for Nottingham / Derby.

Lanes two, three and four were originally closed as a precaution due to hanging debris, however this precaution has now been extended across all lanes.
