    1 thought on “M1 Live Traffic News”

    1. Sorry but not a live travel report but was involved in an incident on the M1 at 1900 hrs on the 3rd October when Southern Motorway was closed before Junction 28 to remove debris causing damage to several cars. I would really appreciate if I could get a report from your good selves on this as it appeared on your website.
      My insurance company requires this info. Many thanks in anticipation.
