A man has been sentenced to two years in prison after his actions resulted in a major motorway route being closed for 28 hours.

Nicholas Muton, 45, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to causing a public nuisance. Muton staged a protest on the M1 motorway at junction 22 on 12 June when he scaled an overhead stanchion.

As a result the southbound carriageway between junction 22 and 23 was closed for 28 hours.

He planned the protest and knew the impact his actions would have on members of the public and the emergency services.

Assistant Chief Constable Phil Kay: “The incident caused gridlock in the areas around the closure and a massive inconvenience to motorists throughout the UK.
