Firefighters used cutting equipment to access to the interior of a car which appeared to have collided with a tree.

Police confirmed that a woman, who is believed to be the driver of the vehicle, was taken to hospital. Her injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

There were long delays country bound as the crash blocked one lane of the motorway, but police confirmed the lane has now reopened.

Elsewhere, the Frosses Rd in Ballymoney is closed following a two vehicle road traffic collision. Local diversions are in place but delays are expected.
