The A4500 was closed this morning (Tuesday) from shortly after 9am after a car caught fire.

The route was shut between the Sixfields Roundabout and the M1 at junction 16 due to smoke billowing across the road, reopening at around 10am.

The car was alight just on Weedon Road, just off the A4500 close to the petrol station roundabout.
