M1 closed after multi-vehicle crash

A stretch of the northbound M1 has been closed after a multiple-vehicle crash.

Officers from Bedfordshire Police were called to the scene of the pile-up close to junction 12, near Flitwick, at 5.41am today.

A police spokesman, who advised motorists to avoid the area, said one vehicle overturned and at least one casualty had been seriously injured.

The M1 southbound remains open but a diversion for northbound traffic has been set up between junction 9 of the M1 at Redbourn and junction 13 near Milton Keynes.
