Drivers on the A55 faced almost an hour added to their morning commute due to a crash.

Tailbacks stretched back for miles after the accident at about 8am on Tuesday (April 4), but have now cleared.

A lane was blocked westbound between junctions 38, the Posthouse Roundabout, and junction 39 at Huntington.

Emergency services had to close the outside lane of the dual carriageway in order to clear the vehicles.

Highways England said there were delays of 50 minutes for commuters heading towards North Wales. Traffic started to clear at about 9am.

Tailbacks reached back as far J12, which is where the road becomes the M53.
