FA Cup Fever Grips Manchester

The eyes of the world are on Wembley today as two Manchester clubs battle it out for a place in the FA Cup Final.

An estimated sixty thousand fans have made their way to London to cheer on the Reds and the Blues. Loads went by train, others made their way by car or coach.

There has been disruption for many as parts of the M1 remained closed in both directions after a fire. Looks like this will be the case until around 7pm.

The Highways Agency have said they hope to open one northbound lane by the end of today's game between United and City at Wembley - which kicks off at 515pm.

But a spokesman said the southbound carriageway would remain shut between junctions one and four ``until it is safe to be reopened''.
