Motorway collision involving two lorries

M1 southbound between junction 15 (Northampton) and Newport Pagnell Service Area

One appliance and crew from Newport Pagnell, one from Broughton, one from West Ashland, two from Mereway and an officer attended. No-one was trapped. About 100 litres of engine oil spilled on to the carriageway.

Firefighters helped separate the lorries in readiness for recovery services, and to carry out a thermal scan on the engine compartment of one of the lorries.

One of the lorries was carrying flour and the other one aluminium.
