A CRASH which involved an articulated lorry took place on the A429 in the early hours of this morning.

Police were called to a report of a collision on the A429 near Farmington shortly after 1am today, Friday, March 1.

Officers say the lorry driver had careered off the road, which resulted in the carriageway being partially blocked. 

Nobody is believed to have been injured in the crash.

The A429 from the Northleach A40 roundabout to Bourton-on-the-Water closed this morning to allow for debris to be removed. 

Gloucestershire County Council confirmed at midday that the road is still closed to drivers but said it should reopen under temporary traffic lights later today.

Motorists have been reminded to follow the diversion signs on the road.
