Traffic on the A1 was brought to a standstill due to a collision involving at least two vehicles.

The incident happened early yesterday afternoon, Saturday December 16, on the northbound carriageway between Blyth and the M18.

An eye witness told the Free Press: “Two cars at least involved in collision. National Highways, Fire and police in attendance. No ambulance at the time we passed.”

They added: “People were out of the vehicles and walking about so hopefully nobody too badly injured.”
