and live on Freeview channel 276
Traffic has been brought to a standstill on the M1 — by runaway SHEEP.
A spokesman added that traffic officers are on scene and promised updates for drivers stuck in nearly seven miles of queues.
Delays of up to 45 minutes were reported for vehicles already on the motorway in both directions between junction 15 and junction 13.
Anyone thinking of using the M1 is being advised to find an alternative route — although traffic was reported as being heavy on the A5 as a result.
