The traffic lights on Spencer Bridge Road stopped working causing chaos for drivers

All traffic lights on the Spencer Bridge Road junction were left in darkness for some time today (Monday), which meant drivers had to be extra cautious when edging into the centre of the road.

The out-of-action lights had further repercussions on surrounding traffic in the area as there were queues of vehicles trying to change direction at the lights.

It is understood that all traffic lights are now in working order and were fixed around 2.30pm.

Engineers were called out to carry out repairs at the junction just five days ago.

Northamptonshire County Council have been approached for further comment.
