The A607 Leicester Road in Melton was closed in both directions last night (Tuesday) after a collision involving multiple cars and a fuel spillage.
Leicestershire Police say the incident happened between Edendale Road and Kirby Road and it led to long tailbacks in the town in the early evening.
A police spokesman said: “We were called at 6.10pm to reports of a collision involving four or five vehicles.
“One person sustained minor injuries in the incident.
“It appears there was a diesel spillage and police closed the road so it could be dealt with.”
