A lorry which crashed into the central reservation of the M1 has been removed.

The crash, between junction eight at Blaris and junction nine at Moira, happened at about 11:45 BST on Friday, causing long delays in both directions.

The outer lanes on either side of the barrier were closed, but have since re-opened.

There are still delays on the M1 towards Belfast due to a separate three-vehicle collision after junction nine.
