The A1 has reopened after being closed for nearly a day for urgent repairs to a burst water main.

The southbound carriageway in Bedfordshire, between the Black Cat roundabout at Roxton and Sandy, closed in the early hours of Tuesday and opened at 23:00 BST.

Heavy delays were reported in the area as drivers were diverted.

Anglian Water thanked motorists for their "patience" whilst they carried out the "vital repairs".
