A driver abandoned their broken-down car on the M1 this morning - because 'they had somewhere to be'.

The vehicle was left in lane one southbound between junctions 35 and 34 of the motorway at around 11am.

A Highways England spokesperson said: "The owner abandoned it telling us they had just left it there as they had somewhere to be."

The car was removed and the carriageway reopened at around 11.45am.
