The victim is aged 24. She is said to have suffered a series of fractures and a brain injury although her condition is not yet clear.

The road was shut between Liquorpond roundabout and the ATS roundabout for about three hours, re-opening at about 4.45pm.

The closure brought traffic to a complete standstill across the town, with motorists reporting long queues during the school run.

A force spokesman called for patience while a forensic examination was carried out at the scene.
