RUSH hour traffic chaos was caused after a lorry broke down on the A19.

The HGV broke down close to Easington on the south-bound carriageway of the road at about 8.30am today.

Queues quickly developed as far back as the A19 junction with A690.

The lorry was eventually cleared, allowing the traffic to begin moving.
