MOTORISTS were advised to avoid the A417 near Wantage after a crash this morning.

Oxfordshire County Council has tweeted about 'long delays' on Reading Road due to a collision in East Hendred.

The eastbound stretch was partially blocked but had been cleared by about 8.30am, and the road is now clear. 

The crash happened at the Allin's Lane junction and congestion was tailing back to Wantage.

South Central Ambulance Service was not called out to the scene. 

It is the second incident of the morning on the A417 - in Faringdon, traffic was slow after a lorry crash.
