A DIDCOT road will remain closed today after a gas leak.

Drivers are being warned to expect rush hour delays on Ladygrove Road, which is shut in both directions after the incident yesterday evening.

Oxfordshire County Council said last night the gas main had 'ruptured', adding that the road closure will cause issues to 'peak morning traffic.'

It is expected to particularly affect motorists heading towards Abingdon.

The closure is in place between Sires Hill and the A4130. It is not yet known when the road will reopen.
