Road closures are in place and motorists are asked to avoid the area.

We have received dashcam footage from one passing motorist, who wished not to be named.

He told The Standard: “It looks to have been a head-on smash just as the vehicles came over the rise over the railway line. It is a dangerous spot as people accelerate away from the roundabout.

“I can see one vehicle badly smashed and the other is parked up nearby.”

* Traffic is very slow going through Sleaford because of the road closure.
