Traffic is moving normally again on the M1 southbound after two lanes were earlier closed at Chesterfield.

Emergency services were at the scene of what Highways England called a 'medical emergency' resulting in a car being stranded at junction 29a at about 5.45pm.

Delays of up to 15 minutes were reported as traffic passed the scene slowly, but all lanes are now open.
