Nottinghamshire MP Graham Allen is campaigning alongside a constituent to have new HGV mirror laws implemented following M1 shun
A motorist from Nottingham whose car was shunted a quarter of a mile down a motorway by a lorry wants to get rid of HGV blind spots.
Five lorries have crashed in fog closing the northbound section of the M1 on the Derbyshire-Nottinghamshire border.
Part of the M1 near junction 25 has been closed following a serious collision. It happened just before 12 midday today (Fri).
The road is currently closed in both directions and is expected to be so for a number of hours.
Emergency services are working at the scene.
One lane closed due to broken down vehicle on M1 Northbound between J20 A4303 / A4304 (Lutterworth) and J21 M69 / A563 (Leicester).
All lanes of the M1 are now open after the accident involving five lorries between Junction 25 and 26.
The motorway is still congested with journeys between junctions 24 and 25 taking 40 minutes.
Nottinghamshire Police advising drivers passing the scene of the crash not to take photos.
If you are driving past the crash scene on the M1 (J25-26), we advise you not to take any photos or recordings as this is very dangerous.
The Highways Agency are providing updates on the knock on effect of the closure of the M1 Northbound.
