Heavy traffic on the A41 southbound slowed up the bank holiday getaway yesterday.

Drivers faced delays of up to 60 minutes on the A34 Western By-Pass between A44 Woodstock Road and B430 Weston-on-The-Green.

There was also a four-car crash on the A34 southbound, just before the Peartree Interchange after 3pm. No one was injured in the collision between a Vauxhall Astra, Ford Mondeo, Fiat Panda and Toyota Yaris.
