A MAJOR road is closed this morning after a van overturned, trapping a person inside.

The A34 northbound is shut between the junctions with Whitchurch and Litchfield following the incident which occurred at around 6.30pm.

Emergency services are at the scene but it is understood the person is still trapped within the vehicle.

Drivers should expect long delays and police are urging motorists to avoid the route, although a diversion is in place.

A police spokesman added: “It's not clear how long the road will be closed at the moment, but we will update you as soon as we can.”

You can't really clear a road when someone is still trapped within the wreckage. Obviously.
