Further up, an accident between junctions 14 and 13 at Milton Keynes, which also happened earlier this afternoon, has closed the hard shoulder and lanes 1 and 2. The road is expected to be clear by around 7.15pm this evening. Delays are around 30 minutes.

Emergency services are at the scenes of both crashes but it is not known how many vehicles are involved.

Delays are also expected on the major roads around the motorway as drivers divert to avoid the queues.
