A lane closed this morning after a three-car crash has now been cleared.

Police were on scene at the B1404 Seaton Lane junction of the A19 Northbound.

The lane was closed but was re-opened at 9.25am.

The incident comes after major disruptions on another North East road.

Motorists are being warned to expect delays after a sinkhole - five metres wide and three metres deep - emerged on the A1 near the Lobley Interchange, northbound, at 11.45pm on Saturday.

Tyne Tunnel has lifted the barriers and suspended tolls while the carriageway is repaired.
