A crash involving two vehicles forced the closure of a busy road in town earlier today.

Danes Camp Way had to be closed in both directions between the Towcester Road junction and Hunsbury Hill Avenue junction due to a crash, although the road has now reopened.

It is believed the two vehicles involved are a car and a motorbike.

Emergency services, including police, ambulance and the air ambulance, were called at around 2.20pm this afternoon.

The incident is causing long delays in the area for drivers with queueing traffic and delays going back to the Tesco car park at Mereway.

Stagecoach said it is diverting is buses via West Hunsbury and Camp Hill.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area.
