Long queues have resulted again this morning at a busy junction in Northampton after traffic lights malfunctioned again.

Motorists using the White Elephant junction, near Northampton Racecourse, were left frustrated once more after the junction was thrown into chaos this morning.

When the Chron reported on the issue lasy month, pub staff at the White Elephant said the lights had failed up to eight times since Christmas 2014.

In response, Northamptonshire County Council said that highways workers “endeavour to make regular checks”.
