A set of broken traffic lights have been creating havoc on a busy Northampton junction.

Drivers have been forced to cross the lights where Spencer Bridge Road and the A428 meet with extreme caution since yesterday.

Motorists making a right from Spencer Bridge onto Harlestone Road in particular, have had to edge perilously into the middle of the crossing as traffic approaches from four directions.

But Northamptonshire County Council says it is working to fix the fault.
