Traffic lights are still out at a major roundabout in Northampton where an accident happened at the weekend.

A vehicle smashed through the railing on the inside of the Tesco Mereway roundabout on Sunday morning, near the Danes Camp exit.

It then careered down the bank and into the open subway below.

Also yesterday morning, the traffic lights on the roundabout had malfunctioned and are still not working.

The resulting slow progress of vehicles has caused congestion in Mereway, Danes Camp and Towcester Road.
