The warning of delays was put out on their social media Twitter feed saying that diversions are in place and the road was likely to be closed for “a few hours”.

A police spokesman said: “A male driver is seriously injured.”

There are no details as yet about the vehicles involved.

Drivers are advised to use Sidebar Lane and A153 diversions and avoid using Heckington village.
