Drivers in and near Grantham have been hit with traffic delays after three separate crashes on Tuesday morning.

Lincolnshire Police’s Force Control Room said shortly after 3am that there were delays on the A1 at Foston Northbound due an overturned lorry, which blocked one lane.

The force later tweeted that the road would be completely closed, and may be for several hours, so diversions were put in place.

Shortly after 8am, police said officers were dealing with a crash at the B6403 at Easton. The Northbound carriageway was closed and was running on one lane whilst police awaited recovery, so it was advised to avoid the area if possible.

A third crash, on the A1 south at Great Ponton, Grantham, caused further delays in the area with police advising to use alternative routes where possible.
