The M1 has been closed this morning in both directions after a lorry crashed in treacherous conditions.

The motorway is closed southbound between junctions 20 and 19.

Huge tailbacks are reported to be building in the area.

Last night saw heavy rain and snow fall in parts of the country resulting in flash flooding and thousands of homes being left without power.
