The road was shut Eastbound while emergency services dealt with a collision.

Traffic had been diverted off the A303 between Countess Roundabout (A345) and the Cholderton turning (A338) going towards London.

But both lanes have now re-opened.

Wiltshire Police tell us a van and a lorry have been involved in a collision.

They were called out at 1.10pm this afternoon (Wednesday July 17th).

It's believed the driver of the van was trapped in his vehicle.

There was also an oil spillage on the carriageway, which needed to be cleared up before the road re-opened.

Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue were at the scene too:
