There is heavy congestion throughout the Sutton area this afternoon as the A38 is still closed following an earlier serious road traffic collision.

The road is still closed between Penny Emma Way and Orchard Way according to Nottinghamshire Police, as officers clean up the scene.

This has resulted in heavy traffic in the surrounding area as motorists follow diversions and seek an alternative route.
