BANBURY: A three-vehicle crash caused long delays on the M40 yesterday.

No one was reported hurt in the incident, however long tailbacks caused gridlock on the southbound stretch between Junction 11, Banbury, and Junction 10, Ardley, from about 12.20pm.

The motorway was closed for 20 minutes for the cars, a BMW, Vauxhall Safira and Toyota Yaris to be recovered.
