Traffic is moving slowly after a busy road has been closed due to an ongoing police incident.
The A182 at Easington Lane is currently closed in both directions due to a police incident.
A tweet from bus operator Go North East says: "We're unable to serve Easington Lane due to a police incident. Service X1 is terminating at Hetton le Hole, whilst X5 is diverting via the A19 and Murton, with no service at South Hetton or Easington Lane."
