THIS was the scene on the A697 last week after a 4x4 went off the road, causing the caravan it was towing to overturn.

The accident happened at around 5.30pm near the Swarland Brick Works site at Thrunton.

No injuries were caused to any occupants of the vehicle but the road was closed for around four hours as the caravan was in the middle of the road.

It is thought that the car sustained a puncture, causing the driver to lose control, pulling the caravan off the road.
