A CLOSED lane which was causing delays of up to 30 minutes on a dual carriageway near Andover has since reopened.

A lane on the southbound stretch of the A34, between Bullington Cross and the exit for Tufton and Whitchurch, was closed earlier today (Monday) due to a broken-down lorry having its tyre changed.

Queues of up to four miles were reported at once stage with average speeds of five miles per hour.

But traffic is now said to be easing after all lanes were reopened at around 2.15pm.
