Motorists warned of delays on A500 in Stoke-on-Trent

Motorists are being warned of rush hour delays on the A500 in Stoke-on-Trent.

The dual carriageway is shut northbound at the A52 City Road interchange after a lorry suffered a tyre blowout.

Highways bosses say it has damaged its fuel tank and diesel has been spilt across the road.

After the spillage has been cleared the carriageway will need to be resurfaced.

There are long delays in the area tailing back to the A34 Hanford interchange.

Motorists are being urged to find alternative routes.
