A chemical spill caused by a lorry crash has closed the A45 near Northampton in both directions.

The vehicle crossed through the central reservation and overturned between Kislingbury and Harpole at 0100 BST.

A spokesman for Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue said bleach and oil had spilt from the tanker and a clean up operation was under way.

Drivers have been told they face some disruption. The road is expected to reopen later in the day.
