But a full closure in both directions has now taken effect with Highways England saying delays will add 60 minutes to usual journey times. A diversion is in place. Unofficial estimates are that the carriageway is unlikely to open fully until 3.30pm.

A police spokeswoman said three lorries and a car were involved in the crash and both an air ambulance and the fire service were in attendance.
