Crash on the A1M cleared


A crash that closed a stretch of the A1M near Boroughbridge has been cleared.

We reported earlier that the road was shut by a two-car collision on the A1M southbound between J49 Ripon Road (Thirsk / Dishforth) and J48 A6055 (Boroughbridge).

It was causing delays of 1½ hours. But by 3.45pm the incident was cleared and traffic has begun to ease.
