A major dual carriageway has been reopened by police after a serious crash after being shut for several hours.

The A45 westbound between Rushden Lakes and Wellingborough in Northamptonshire was closed at about 10am today.

A spokesman said then: "It is expected to be closed until at least lunchtime. There is also no access from Ditchford Road or Little Irchester. The eastbound carriageway remains open but the area is likely to be busy this morning so please allow extra time for your journey. Thank you for your patience while emergency services deal with this incident."

Police have now confirmed that the road is back to normal.
