A crash involving a lorry and four cars shut a section of the M1 motorway and caused long delays for motorists.

The northbound side between junctions 26 and 28, near Nottingham, Mansfield and Alfreton, was shut for about three hours following the accident earlier.

The southbound side of the M1 also closed temporarily to allow an air ambulance to land.

A car had overturned but there were no life-threatening injuries, according to Derbyshire Police.
