A vehicle carrying an "abnormal load" is expected to cause delays on the M25 and M1 tomorrow.

Police will escort the vehicle, carrying a tram throughout its 30mph journey from Southampton in Hampshire to Nottingham.

Its journey will start at approximately 10am via the northbound M3, clockwise M25 and northbound M1 to junction 26 where it will complete its journey into Nottingham.

Drivers are advised to plan their journeys before they set out, and to leave extra time if they are going to be affected by this vehicle’s journey.
