Drivers are being warned about delays on a major road through North Yorkshire today (Friday, 8 September).

Two out of three lanes on the A1M southbound are closed due to emergency surface repairs between J53 A66 (Scotch Corner) and J52 A6055 (Catterick).

It follows “a substantial spillage of offal” which damaged the road surface last night.

The lanes are expected to stay closed throughout the day.
