M1 'could be reopened on Monday'

Parts of the fire-damaged M1 into London may now not reopen until Monday, the Highways Agency has said.

The seven-mile stretch of road between junctions one and four was closed both ways after a scrapyard fire on Friday.

Two lanes of the northbound motorway are now open. Southbound remains closed for safety reasons but officials hope to get one lane open tomorrow morning.

Daniel Boettcher reports.
