One person was injured but it’s not believed that their injuries are life-threatening, according to Lincolnshire Police.

Emergency services are at the scene and National Highways traffic officers are assisting with traffic management.

A diversion route is in place taking drivers off the A1 at the A606 turn off, following the road until it reaches the A607 at Melton Mowbray.
