Road reopens after lorry fire prompts repairs

A major road has reopened after emergency repairs following a lorry fire in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The A34 was closed in both directions between its junctions with the A420 at Botley and A423 at Hinksey, Oxford.

It was shut for most of Saturday and overnight while National Highways recovered the lorry and carried out emergency works.

On Sunday morning, the company said the road was open in both directions and the delays had cleared.
