A CAR crashed into the barrier on the A40 near Oxford this morning, causing delays.

The ring road was partially blocked at North Way, eastbound, about a mile away from Headington Roundabout.

All delays have since cleared.

Oxfordshire County Council initially described the issue as a breakdown and later said a vehicle had collided with the barrier, and had blocked one lane.

Tailbacks were stretching to Marston.
