A CAR burst into flames after a three-vehicle crash on the M1.

Police and fire officers were called after the accident, which happened last Wednesday (March 21) at around 4.40pm.

The crash happened half a mile south of junction 17 of the motorway, around the M45 turn off.

There were no injuries to any drivers or passengers involved.

However the motorway did have to be closed in both directions for a short while to enable Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue service to deal with the car fire (pictured).

The three-car accident caused heavy congestion for commuters travelling in both directions.
