The A1(M) in North Yorkshire is now open northbound following a serious collision involving two lorries this morning.

The first reports of a collision involving two HGVs were received at about 5am this morning.

Emergency services attended the scene.

Crash

Police were urging drivers to avoid the area, use alternative routes, and allow extra time for their journeys. 

One lane of the road was expected to open around 10am to allow trapped traffic to disperse, with motorists still advised to avoid the area.

Highways England issued details of how traffic is being diverted via the 'Solid Circle' diversion route:

Driving north, exit the A1M using J48 exit slip road. At the roundabout take the 3rd exit onto the A6055 and proceed for approximately 100 yards.

At the roundabout take the 1st exit onto the A168 and continue for 1 mile. At the roundabout take the 2nd exit onto the A168 and proceed on this road for approximately 2 miles.

At the roundabout take the 2nd exit to remain on the A168 for another 3 miles. At the roundabout take the 1st exit and follow the signs to either re-join the A1 northbound or continue on the A168 eastbound.
