THE A420 has reopened after a multi-vehicle crash earlier this evening.

Police briefly shut part of the road between the A338 roundabout and the Kingston Bagpuize junction after the collision, causing delays for drivers.

The number of cars involved is unclear, with an eyewitness seeing three cars and an ambulance parked at the junction for Tubney at about 7.15pm.

Vehicles were previously being ordered to turn around by police, according to one Twitter user.
