Leicestershire Fire & Rescue has released pictures of a crash earlier this morning to highlight the dangers of driving in wet conditions.

The road was closed in both directions as emergency services dealt with the incident. The road has now reopened.

The fire service hopes the dramatic pictures will encourage motorists to drive more carefully on damp road conditions.

A spokesman for Harborough Fire Service said: “Please take into consideration that the roads are wet so your stopping distances will increase! Reduce your speed.”
