Motorists are being urged to avoid an area of County Durham after a gas main collapsed earlier this evening.

The A167 north and south bound carriageways are closed between Ropery Lane roundabout and the A1M Junction 63 roundabout.

It will be closed overnight whilst repairs are completed and major congestion is expected due to ongoing roadworks already in place on Park Road North.

Motorists are being urged to find an alternative route.
