Traffic was being diverted down Clack Hill in Harborough this morning (Monday) after a crash on the A6 bypass.
Eyewitnesses have reported seeing a black Mini and a motorcycle at the junction, in between the two lanes of the bypass.
Three police cars are in attendance and traffic is being sent down Clack Hill or to the Rockingham Road roundabout for those heading in the direction of Kettering.
The junction has been in the news recently due to a proposed Leicestershire County Council move to bring in a ‘no right turn’ at the spot.
Highways bosses are proposing to prevent traffic from turning right off the A6 down Kettering Road which the county council says is in response to concerns from residents.
But several correspondents have contacted the Mail’s letters page to argue against the plan with some calling for a 50mph speed limit.
Andrew Wright, commenting on Twitter this morning, said: “Accident at A6/Kettering Road junction. A6 currently closed northbound. Diversion down Kettering Road. #blackspot.”
Meanwhile, there were two other crashes in the Harborough district over the last three days.
Harborough fire crews were called to a car crash on the A6 in Harborough on Saturday at about 11am.
One car had left the road and ended up in a ditch, according to the Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service daily report log.
Firefighters cut some bushes away and helped a woman who was in the car. Police and the ambulance service were also in attendance, said the report.
And a fire crew from Kibworth was called to Warwick Road in the village just before 6pm on Friday after two cars were involved in a collision.
No-one was trapped and the fire service made the vehicles safe, as per the log.
Two casualties were assessed at the scene by the ambulance service, it said.
