The A5 is closed in both directions between the A45 High Street junction in Weedon Bec and the A43 junction in Towcester, because of a spillage of several hundred litres of diesel on the road.

A diversion is in operation, via the A45 to the M1 junction 16 Northampton, south to J15a, and the A43 to Towcester (and vice versa).
