Police, ambulance and fire services are attending two crashes on the A1(M) northbound, both near Hatfield.

The stretch between Junction 1 and 2 is closed to allow ambulance services to get to the scene.

Police say to expect congestion and delays in the area and use the M1 or A10 in the meantime.

The first crash happened, around 3.50pm today, between a silver Volkswagen Polo and a white Citroen Berlingo.

The fire service were also called following reports of spilt diesel, and the ambulance service are still assessing the driver of the Polo.

Police also rushed to a second crash, at around 4pm, near Junction 2, where a silver Volkswagen Golf hit a barrier near an exit slip road.

Officers are still at the scene and it is unknown whether anyone was injured at this time.

Highways England say "trapped traffic" will be released soon.
