Motorists have been warned to expect diversions close to the M1 this week, as Highways Agency staff carry out bridge inspections.

Teams will be working from 9pm-5am inspecting the bridge over the M1 at junction 8 until Thursday (August 11).

Lanes will be closed approaching the junction in both directions. The exit slip roads will be closed, with drivers diverted to continue to the next junction, exit and return.
