A police spokesman said one woman was left with what is believed to be a broken leg but that there are no life-threatening injuries.

Fire crews from Kettering, Rothwell and Mereway, including the technical rescue vehicle, attended the crash with one person extricated from a car.

The Kettering to Corby stretch was re-opened by police just after 9.30am, with the Corby to Kettering carriageway re-opening fully about an hour later.
