Two separate collisions along a dual carriageway in Northampton are causing major delays around the town's road network.

The A45 eastbound is partially blocked due to an accident near the Riverside retail park, causing major delays for those heading out of town.

The cars have been moved to the outside lane waiting for recovery to arrive.

And there has been a separate collision on the A45 where it meets junction 15 of the M1. Currently one lane is closed by the roundabout, but the cumulative effect of both collisions is causing tailbacks south on the A45 to Stoke Bruerne.

Major roads in Northamptonpton, such as Mereway, Cheyne Walk and London Road are all experiencing major delays as a result of the collisions.
