An overturned vehicle was reported on the eastbound side between junction 12 for Islip and the Finedon turn at junction 11 just after 2.30pm on Monday (January 27).

Queues of nearly three miles quickly built up back towards Kettering heading into the evening school run and rush-hour.

Local police were advising motorists heading east to avoid using village roads as a diversion and leave the A14 at junction 10, using the A6 and A45 to rejoin the trunk road at junction 13 at Thrapston.
