The closure is due to a large oil spillage across all lanes from a broken down vehicle. Leicestershire Police and Highways England Traffic Officers are on scene.
Motorists are being diverted and should follow the hollow circle symbol. Exit at J23 and take the 3rd exit onto the A512 westbound. Turn left onto the B591 Ingleberry Road and travel south.
Turn right to remain on the B591 and follow until the A511 junction. Turn left to re-join the M1 at J22.
