Two South Yorkshire motorways have re-opened after a crash in which a man was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries.

A man was flown to the Northern General Hospital after a crash involving a lorry and a van on the M1 this morning.

All three southbound lanes of the M1 between junction 31 for Aston and Worksop and 33 for Catcliffe were closed while emergency services dealt with the incident and arranged for the damaged vehicles to be towed away.

The southbound lanes of the M18 were also closed between junction 1 and junction 32 of the M1 at Thurcroft, but all lanes have now re-opened.

The crash caused chaos, with long queues developing and congestion reported in surrounding areas including Aston, Bramley and Whiston.

The Parkway in Sheffield and Rotherway in Rotherham were also affected.
