A1M closed to high sided vehicles north of York


The A1M is currently closed to high-sided vehicles for a long stretch north of York.

The closure is between J47 York and J56 near Darlington due to the strong winds which have seen a number of lorries overturn this morning.

High-sided vehicles travelling towards Scotland are advised to use the M6.

Meanwhile, the A1M is now open southbound at J51 after an overturned lorry was recovered.
