THERE are tailbacks of around five miles on the A34 after a boat trailer overturned crashing into the central reservation. 

The northbound carriageway of the A34 at the Milton Interchange has been fully reopened following the collision but one lane of the southbound carriageway is expected to remain closed for several hours while repairs are carried out on the barrier on the central reservation.

At about 1.30pm today a Toyota towing a boat collided with the southbound reservation, tipping the boat on to the road which blocked lanes on the northbound and southbound carriageway.
