Death Road Toll Rises

Report by Steve Edwards

The A45 near Newnham appears to have claimed at least one more life yesterday evening and the road between Daventry and Weedon was closed over night. 

Emergency services could be seen working at the site of the accident long into the night and Daventry and local village residents have taken to social media in shock at the rising number of accidents and deaths that have taken place recently.  One person called it "the road of death".

The junctions that lead towards Newnham from the A45 are notoriously difficult to negotiate with some being on blind bends or with restricted views. 

The road has now been re-opened. 

We'll bring you more details as they are released.
