Meanwhile, developers Persimmon Homes say construction of a new roundabout at the junction of Northampton Road in Roade will now continue until after Easter.

Northampton Road is also closed heading towards the A508 from the junction with Churchcroft.

The roundabout is being improved ahead of major work starting on Persimmon's Abbey Place development of 292 new properties at Ashton Road. Contractors are now targeting April 17 as a date for completion.
