The M1 in South Yorkshire is closed northbound between J37 (Barnsley) and J38 (Huddersfield) due to a multi-vehicle collision.
At around 01:20 this morning South Yorkshire Police, Yorkshire Ambulance Service and National Highways Traffic Officers responded to the collision involving 2 cars and 2 lorries.
Recovery of the vehicles and clean up works have been completed. The northbound carriageway remains closed for central reservation barrier repairs. We are hoping to get 2 lanes open shortly northbound whilst repairs take place under a lane 3 closure.
Traffic is being diverted via local routes.
If this closure impacts on your planned route, please allow extra journey time. Plan ahead, you may wish to re-route or even delay your journey.
