By Victoria Chessum

All lanes of the A256 Whitfield roundabout are now open after a lorry crashed this morning.

Eyewitness, John Sheridan, said: "A lorry has failed to stop on A2 and gone straight into Whitfield roundabout causing chaos."

It is believed that traffic coming off from the A2 and the A256 is moving "very slowly" according to one motorist.
