EMERGENCY repairs to a section of the M1 motorway continued to cause delays tonight, following a car transporter blaze earlier today.
Motorists are advised to avoid the M1 between junctions 30-31.
The M1 was closed earlier in both directions as fire crews battled to bring the blaze under control at around 1pm.
Traffic was reported to be tailing back for 12 miles, with frustrated commuters spilling out onto A-roads.
