Campaigners fear speed limits across the country could be cut if plans for a 60mph limit on the M1 in South Yorkshire go ahead.

The Highways Agency wants the new limit to operate on a 30-mile stretch of the M1 past Sheffield – between Junction 28 near Alfreton and Junction 35a at High Green – from 7am to 7pm.

It claims it would help reduce pollution.
