THE A40 London Road through High Wycombe was closed earlier today after a serious collision involving a van and a motorbike.

The collision, on the stretch between Hatters Lane and Bassetsbury Lane, was first reported just after 10am.

The road was shut completely, causing long tailbacks through the town centre as an air ambulance was reportedly called out to the scene.

The road has since reopened.

Full details of the collision will appear on this website once they have been released by Thames Valley Police.
