A broken down truck in Flitwick town town centre caused chaos for motorists earlier today (Dec 17).

The lorry broke down on the roundabout close to the train station at lunchtime, causing huge tailbacks stretching all the way to Ampthill and causing long delays for shoppers trying to exit Tesco car park.

One motorist said: “It couldn’t have been in a worse place. Everywhere was gridlocked during a busy lunchtime. It took me and hour and half to get home.”
