A STRETCH of the M1 has been closed in Rotherham after a multi-vehicle collision this morning (Friday).
The motorway was closed in both directions between junctions 34 and 35.
Highways England said it would take until about 11am to clear all the trapped traffic.
A spokesman said emergency services including the air ambulance had been called.
He added: “Traffic is being diverted via local routes. Road users are advised to consider alternative routes and allow additional time for their journeys.”
