DRIVERS were delayed for more than an hour after three cars collided on the A338 Spur Road.

Emergency services closed the road just after 5pm yesterday following the collision between a blue Vauxhall Corsa, a red Toyota Aygo and a white Audi estate car.

The accident took place on the southbound carriageway around a mile from the Ashley Heath roundabout.

The ambulance service attended and dealt with slight injuries.

Traffic was at a standstill and some occupants of the vehicles got out of the cars with some even playing catch in the middle of the carriageway.

The road re-opened at 6.20pm after the vehicles were recovered.
