A BROKEN-down lorry that had blocked a section of the A40 has now been cleared.

The road was partially blocked both ways and there was queueing traffic for two miles from Oxford Hill (Witney) to Barnard Gate turn off.

This was the same stretch of road where traffic had built earlier following a three-vehicle crash this morning.

One man had to be taken to hospital with 'potentially serious injuries'.

There has been another accident on the A40 in the queue where the broken down lorry was.
