A busy road was blocked in South Tyneside after a collision this morning.

The A185 Victoria Road East in Hebburn was shut near Windsor Crescent and Black Road.

A vehicle carrying an abnormal had collided with bollards and the load became unstable.

Reader Steven Hodson, who took this picture, said: "The truck seems to have moved on but is heading through Hebburn slowly with an escort vehicle."
