DELAYS ARE BUILDING on the M50 northbound just past Sandyford this evening, after an overturned car has closed the right and middle lanes.

AA Roadwatch is warning people to exercise caution on the roads, and only one lane was open to traffic for the past hour.

It is understood that there are delays from just past J13 Sandyford as far as back as the turn off for Kilternan.

No serious injuries have been reported.

A breakdown southbound at Kilternan is also causing traffic disruption, blocking the right lane.
