AN overturned van caused rush- hour chaos on a busy road.

Emergency services were called to the roundabout on Newcastle Road, near Boldon Business Park, after a van pulling a horse trailer overturned just before 3pm yesterday.

There was no livestock in the trailer at the time and no one was injured in the accident.

The road was blocked for several hours after the incident while police officers removed the vehicle and cleared debris from the road.
