The entire M1 northbound between junctions five and six was shut for a while, but two lanes have now reopened - leaving the other two lanes still closed.

It is not expected to clear until 8.45pm, and people should anticipate delays until 9.45pm.

A central reservation barrier and lamp column is currently being repaired.
