One carriageway reopens on A1 between Grantham and Colsterworth following serious collision
A lane of the A1 southbound carriageway has reopened following a serious collision earlier this evening (Wednesday).
The carriageway was closed between the A607 junction for Grantham and Melton Mowbray, and Colsterworth at the A151 junction, just before 7pm.
As motorists took to social media to voice frustration at being stuck in stationary traffic and a lack of communication, Highways England responded: "Police have advised us that they have opened a single lane through the incident to assist in clearing traffic."
Police, fire and rescue and paramedics are at the scene of the accident.
More as we have it.
