THERE were severe delays on the M40 London-bound this morning following a two-vehicle crash.

Two lanes were closed between Stokenchurch (junction 5) and High Wycombe (junction 4) as a result of the incident at around 5.30am.

Delays of up to two-and-a-half hours were reported.

Highway England confirmed all lanes have since reopened after the vehicles involved, believed to be a car and a minibus, were removed from the carriageway.

The incident had a knock-on effect into morning rush hour.
