There has been traffic congestion on the A153 this afternoon (Wednesday) outside Sleaford after a three vehicle crash where one car ended up on its roof.

According to the AA report traffic was affected in directions, but the road has now been cleared.

Police and emergency services have attended the scene, but police say no-one was injured.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area if possible, but the junction, a slip road on and off the A17 Sleaford bypass is usually extremely busy at this time of day.

There have been calls in the past for a new roundabout to be built to relieve the junction opposite the rugby club.
