OXON: The A420 northbound was shut for nearly seven hours yesterday because of mud on the road.
The carriageway was closed between the A338 and B4017 Abingdon Road from 12.05am until shortly before 7am.
A police spokesman said it was unclear where it had come from, but it caused a safety hazard.
The mud was later cleared by county council contractors.
