Traffic is still backed up for several miles on the A1(M) and M1 because of an earlier accident in which a car ended up on its roof.

One lane is still closed at J47 northbound and the A1(M) Aberford bypass.

The accident happened in the early hours and for a while two lanes had been closed.

Motorists are being urged to avoid the area at the moment.
