A LORRY carrying more than 20 tonnes of yeast has overturned on the M1 near Thurcroft at around 10.15pm last night (Monday).

A large-scale clean up operation is under way after the tanker, believed to be carrying Marmite, crashed and spilt its contents onto the carriageway between junctions 32 and 33.

Motorists can expect delays up to one hour between junctions 37 and 33.

The Highways Agency said it hoped the road would reopen this morning after police closed the road in both directions.

The tanker driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries after being involved in a collision with a motor caravan.
