Reducing the speed limit on a stretch of the M1 the East Midlands and South Yorkshire would have a negative impact on businesses, according to industry leaders.

Derbyshire, Notts and Leicestershire Chambers of Commerce have hit out at the proposals by the Highways Agency to implement a maximum mandatory speed limit of 60mph between junction 28 at Mansfield and junction 35a at Sheffield and Rotherham.

The new restrictions would apply from 7am to 7pm, seven days a week in a bid to cut air pollution.
