Derbyshire Police say two men have been arrested after a car failed to stop around junction 29 on the M1
The force says a blue Nissan 350z eventually stopped 'a short time' after 12:50pm this afternoon.
The driver was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and the passenger on suspicion of money laundering:
At 12.50pm an officer reported that a blue Nissan 350z failed to stop on the M1 southbound at junction 29. The vehicle stopped a short time later and officers arrested the male driver on suspicion of dangerous driving and the male passenger on suspicion of money laundering.— Derbyshire Police (@DerbysPolice) July 22, 2019
The vehicle requires recovery and drivers on the #M1 are likely to see delays as this takes place. We ask those already on the motorway to be patient and those who are planning on using the road to allow extra time or take a different route.— Derbyshire Police (@DerbysPolice) July 22, 2019
