Motorists warned over jams

DRIVERS are being warned to expect delays during Friday’s rush hour after two crashes.

A crash on the northbound M1 has caused delays between junction 15 (Northampton south) and junction 17 for the M45.

Average speeds have dropped to 15mph, although the situation is improving.

On the A45 at Barnes Meadow, near the A428 junction, in Northampton there has also been a crash causing delays on that road.

On the eastbound carriageway speeds are down to just 8mph.

Motorists are warned to avoid those roads in particular, and expect some delays on alternative routes.
