Rush hour commuters faced delays earlier this morning after a two-car accident on the M40 Northbound at around 7.45am.

Two vehicles collided between junction 2 A355 (Beaconsfield) and junction 3 (Loudwater) which left one of the cars was left facing the central barrier.

Two lanes had been closed to allow the cars to be recovered and were reopened just after 8.00am. Traffic has begun to ease on both carriageways, after cars slowed on the Southbound carriageway as they approached the accident.
