DRIVERS faced delays this afternoon on the M1 after an accident caused the road to close in both directions.
Just before 1.20pm this afternoon it was reported that a Nissan 350z, travelling along the M1 northbound, had collided with the central reservation and left the road.
The collision happened between junction 36-37.
Two people inside the car have been taken to hospital and the extent of their injuries is not yet known.
The carriageway is now fully reopened.
