Traffic is now moving slowly after the A1 southbound carriageway was closed this morning following an accident involving three vehicles.
Fire crews were called to the incident just after 6am. Three people are reported to have been injured in the incident. One person was thrown from their vehicle as a result of the collision between the Tickencote and Stamford junctions. Traffic was backed up to Stoke Rochford.
The incident involved a van and two cars. A spokesman for the fire service said nobody was trapped and three casualties were treated at the scene by ambulance staff. The service said that a search of the area was carried out because one person has been ‘ejected’ from their vehicle.
