A BROKEN down car on the A49 in Hereford is causing delays for drivers heading north into the city.

There is heavy traffic as a result of the car blocking a lane on Victoria Street, near to Greyfriars Bridge.

Traffic website Inrix reports congestion back to Belmont along the A465, and also to Redhill along Ross Road.

On Tuesday evening there was gridlock in Hereford as a broken down lorry on the same bridge caused major delays across the city.
