Motorists on the M40 are currently facing long delays between junctions ten (Brackley) and 11 (Banbury) after a lorry overturned this morning (Monday).

The vehicle was travelling on the southbound carriageway at about 2.50am when it jack knifed and collided with the central reservation, ending up on the outside lane of the northbound carriageway.

The middle and outside lanes going northbound and the southbound outside lane remain shut while recovery work to clear diesel off the road takes place. No-one was injured.
