A stretch of the A697 in Northumberland is currently shut in both directions after a lorry overturned earlier this morning and blocked the road.
The incident happened at 7.10am, a quarter-mile south of Powburn. The overturned HGV has shed a load of sand.
A Northumbria Police spokeswoman said that the road is shut between Powburn and Glanton.
A diversion is in operation via Playwell Road towards Glanton and then onto The Causeway which leads back to the A697.
