Three cars were involved and the resulting blockages of the carriageway saw queues back to Barnes Meadow.

Then at 8.05am a car bumped the back of another at the Barnes Meadow roundabout - on the exit slip road leading to Brackmills - causing further delays.

No serious injuries were caused as a result of either crash, a spokeswoman for Northamptonshire Police said.
