An earlier Northumbria Police statement said: ‘At around 1pm, officers received a report of a three-vehicle collision on the stretch of road that is currently down to just one lane due to roadworks.

‘Thankfully nobody has been seriously injured, but the incident has blocked the road and traffic is at a standstill.

‘Emergency services are doing all they can to get things moving’ but motorists travelling north are advised to use an alternative route until the vehicles involved can be moved.
