Aston Villa fans travelling to London for the FA Cup fixture against Fulham were today warned of a road closure following a serious crash.

Highways England reported the M1 in Bedfordshire was closed in both directions between junction 13 for Milton Keynes and junction 12 for Flitwick this morning.

This was due to a 'serious multiple vehicle collision'.

The northbound carriageway has now been reopened.

"Bedfordshire Police will be conducting collision investigations due to the seriousness of the incident," says the Highways England website.

"The road is likely to remain closed throughout the morning."
