Early morning traffic coming into and travelling through Chesterfield was delayed today, Monday, May 22, after a collision on the Horns Bridge roundabout.

The collision involved a heavy goods vehicle and a van at the junction leading into the northbound A617 towards Lordsmill roundabout and Chesterfield town centre.

Traffic began to build-up with delays just before 7.30am but began to clear after the HGV was safely moved about 7.45am.

Police helped to control traffic before the HGV could be safely moved but the van which had come to rest along one of the lanes at the entrance to the A617 northbound dual carriageway has yet to be moved.

Staff at the nearby Derbyshire Times office, on Spire Walk, confirmed there have previously been near-misses and minor collisions at the same junction.

Witnesses to the road traffic collision can call Derbyshire Constabulary on 101.
