Two separate incidents on the A1(M) are causing problems for motorists this morning.

A car fire between junction 35 for the M18 and junction 36 at Warmsworth is currently causing severe delays on the northbound carriageway while emergency services attend at the scene.

The slip road from the A1(M) to the M18 is currently closed and motorists are being asked to find an alternative route.

Meanwhile, in a seperate incident, traffic is also backing up at the Redhouse junction because of an abnormal load with the exit slip road also closed.

There are also delays on the M180 at Thorne.
