The A419 has reopened this morning after initially being closed while emergency repairs are completed on a damaged gas main.

The dual carriageway was closed in both directions between the B4040  (Cricklade) and the B4019 (A4311) near Blunsdon due to a damaged gas main and resulting gas leak.

However both lanes have now re-opened. 

There are still long delays for motorists, with reports of delays up to an hour.
