They added that there are not believed to be any serious injuries.

A 29-year-old man has since been arrested on suspicion of drug-driving.

Just before 10.45am a Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "Both carriageways are currently closed and will remain closed for some time.

"Traffic is building around the incident, so please avoid the area until further notice."
