Drivers using the A5 in Northamptonshire are being warned to expect delays on Friday morning (May 20).

National HIghways issued a statement at 6am saying the road is closed in both directions between the A43 near Towcester and A508 at Old Stratford because of over-running planned roadworks.

A spokesperson said: “Contractors are working to re-open the road as quickly as possible, however please follow local diversion routes which are laid out by the roadworks closures.
