A lorry overturned on the M1 yesterday causing traffic chaos during the evening rush hour.

The large vehicle blocked the inside lane of the Blacks Road junction with the motorway from approximately 6.30pm.

The incident caused long tailbacks along the road before a recovery service moved in to attempt to remove the stricken vehicle.

Traffic had to be diverted when the road was closed.

It remained off-limits to motorists for a few hours while the operation continued before it was reopened at around 9pm.

The 12-wheeled lorry's livery indicated it was used by Lafarge Tarmac from Solihull.
