One lane of A34 reopens after earlier collision

ONE lane of the A34 has been reopened northbound between Chieveley and Beedon following a single vehicle collision this morning (Fri).

However the Highways Agency says there are still delays of around 40 minutes in the area.

The road was closed for an hour and a half this morning, causing huge delays during the rush hour period, with queues reportedly stretching back as far as Newbury.

The car involved in the collision is said to have flipped onto its roof and police say that the driver is being treated for 'minor' injuries.

It is not yet clear when the road will fully reopen.
