AN OIL spill from an overturned tractor and trailer is causing delays in Winscombe.

The vehicle toppled over earlier this afternoon (Tues) on the A371 between Queensmead Farm and Sidcot School.

The road was closed from 2pm while the tractor was taken away and North Somerset Council cleared up the oil.

It is expected the road will re-open shortly after 5pm. Keep an eye on this website for more updates.
