Both lanes on the eastbound carriageway of the A47 were closed for more than two hours this morning, following an accident between a lorry, a tanker and a tractor.
The crash happened at about 8.45am on the section of road heading towards Harford Bridges, just after the Thickthorn roundabout.
Fire crews, police and ambulance attended the incident, involving a Bartrums lorry, a tractor and a BOC tanker - and the eastbound carriageway was closed until just after 11am.
Traffic was diverted off the A47 and people were advised to use alternative routes.
A police spokesman said no-one suffered serious injuries in the accident, but the road had to be closed to allow the emergency services to remove the vehicles and any debris.
