The motorway was initially closed in both directions for an air ambulance to land, however the child was taken to hospital by road ambulance.

As a result there were approximately five miles of congestion back to Junction 2, and traffic was being diverted off at Junction 4 and rejoining at Junction 5.

Beds, Cambs & Herts Road Policing Unit has confirmed the stretch fully reopened shortly before 6pm.
