TRAFFIC has cleared on a stretch of dual-carriageway after it was partially blocked this morning (Friday).

A lane on the A303 westbound, on the approach to Bullington Cross, had been blocked from around 8am.

This was due to a broken down vehicle just past the Barton Stacey turn-off.

Heavy traffic and tailbacks towards the Bansbury turn-off were reported, however the road has since been cleared with traffic returning to normal levels.
