Three-car crash causes traffic chaos

DRIVERS have reported huge tailbacks on the A19 after an accident involving three cars.

Traffic is queuing northbound between the A1056 Killingworth Way junction and Moor Farm Roundabout, because of an accident involving three vehicles.

One Alnwick motorist on his way home from work has been stationary for 40 minutes, after joing the A19 to go north just after the Tyne Tunnel.

“I’ve seen two or three ambulances, police cars going in both directions and at least three fire engines,” he said.
