Emergency crews have been called out to a serious crash on the outskirts of Alnwick.

Police have closed the Alnwick Moor road (B6341) in both directions between Chapel Lands and Lemmington Bank and diversions are in place.

An Ambulance service spokesman said two vehicles were involved but an eye-witness reported earlier that he thought there were three cars involved.

Police, ambulance and fire and rescue crews are all in attendance and casualties are being treated at the scene. At least 10 emergency vehicles, with sirens sounding and blue lights flashing, have driven past the Gazette office in the direction of the accident.
