Suspicious package "not terror related"

Police say there’s no evidence to suggest a suspicious package found on the M1 near Northampton yesterday was terrorist related.

Motorists left stranded for hours between junctions 15 and 14 Southbound were eventually allowed to pass in the afternoon -and the northbound carriageway didn`t reopen until late last night.

Tests showed the item – which was found under a bridge – contained no explosives – but did have a highly corrosive material inside, which leaked onto the road.
