A lorry has overturned on the link road between the M18 and the M1 in South Yorkshire.

The road was closed since around 4am in the southbound direction, with a diversion in place.

The road was partially reopened around 9am after the vehicle was recovered, but one lane remains closed each way as emergency barrier repairs take place.

A spokesman for Highways England said: "Road users intending to use this link road are advised to allow additional time for their journey in order to navigate the diversion."
