Two lanes of the A45 in Northampton are closed after a crash involving three cars and a lorry.

Police, ambulance and fire engines are on the scene of the crash which happened on the eastbound section of the carriageway Barnes Meadow and Riverside.

Motorists in the area are facing long delays as there has also been a collision on the westbound A428 Bedford Road in Northampton at the Victoria Promenade junction, meaning the road is partially blocked and there is queuing traffic.

Earlier in the afternoon, there was a collision between a car and a lorry on the A45 slip road near Queen Eleanor roundabout.
