The A1 has re-opened this morning after repairs were carried out through the night following a crash.

An HGV carrying fruit and vegetables collided with a Highways Agency truck on the southbound carriageway near Grantham, Lincolnshire, yesterday afternoon.

Diesel spilled across the carriageway, melting the road, which had to be surfaced overnight.
