The M1 is closed southbound between J20 (Lutterworth) and J19 (A14-Catthorpe Interchange) following a collision in which a HGV struck a near side bridge barrier and came to rest hanging over the A14.

The vehicle has been recovered and clean up works are ongoing. Complex barrier repairs will now take place at scene however these are likely to be protracted and the closure is expected to remain in place till late afternoon/early evening.

At the roundabout take the second exit west(straight ahead) and continue westbound along the A4303 passing through a further two roundabouts at Coventry Road and Magna Park to A5/A4303 Cross in Hand Roundabout.
At the roundabout take the first exit (left) onto the A5 south.
Continue along the A5 southbound for approximately 4 kms to the A5/A426 Gibbets Hill Roundabout.
