The A1M is closed northbound this morning after a crash in the early hours.

There’s queuing traffic after the closure between J42 the A63 Selby fork and the M1 Aberford bypass.

Following the collision, reported at 12.52am, an oil spill and crash investigation work has kept the road closed.

A diversion is in place. Drivers should follow the solid square symbol, via the A63 and A656 through Micklefield to the M1 junction 47.
