We are getting reports that the M1 has been closed both ways at Luton

The motorway is closed junctions 11/10 between the Luton turnoff and the slip road to the airport.

A Beds Police spokesman said: “We were called shortly before 1pm this afternoon (Tuesday) to Hatters Way, Luton, to reports of concerns for a man’s welfare.

“Hatters Way was closed at the junction with Dunstable Road, and the northbound carriageway of the M1 was also closed while police assisted at the scene.

“The incident has now been resolved and the road closures are expected to be lifted shortly.”
