A car which failed to stop for police in Northamptonshire has crashed and overturned on the A45 this morning.

The vehicle came off the motorway at j15 but crashed and overturned as it was heading along the eastbound A45 towards Northampton, at the Collingtree turn-off.

The road was closed for over an hour to allow two air-ambulances to land at the scene.
