Breaking News – M1 Closed due to suspicous package

The M1 is closed in both directions after a “suspicious object” was found underneath a bridge.

Traffic is being held up between junction 15 for Northampton and junction 14 for Milton Keynes.

The object was discovered beneath the motorway bridge at about 07:30 BST, Thames Valley Police said.

A bomb disposal unit has been seen travelling along the hard shoulder towards the scene and three fire crews are also in attendance.

The Ministry of Defence confirmed it had provided police with “explosive ordnance device assistance”.

Highways England has posted diversions but it is unclear when the road will reopen.

Trapped northbound traffic is being cleared by funnelling motorists through Newport Pagnell services.

National Express has added 45 minutes to travel times for services that use the motorway.

On Twitter, one stranded motorist wrote: “When you see a helicopter above you and kinda wish they were lowering a portaloo #m1 3 hours and counting…”

Another added: “Just heard a bang. Suspicious package dealt with maybe?”

  1. Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring on other sites?
    I have a blog based on the same subjects you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my viewers would appreciate your work.

    If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.

  2. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book
    in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a
    bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. A great read.

    I will certainly be back.

  3. Hi, I believe your blog could be having browser compatibility issues.

    Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, excellent website!

  4. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

  5. I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering problems with your blog.
    It seems like some of the written text on your posts are running off the
    screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Many thanks

  6. certainly like your website however you have
    to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome
    to tell the reality on the other hand I’ll definitely
    come back again.

  7. After I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each
    time a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the exact same comment.
    Perhaps there is an easy method you are able to
    remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!

  8. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it
    can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is
    now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with
    someone!

  9. I used to be suggested this blog via my cousin. I am no longer
    sure whether this put up is written by way of him as no one else realize such specified about my problem.
