One of the main routes into Sunderland city centre has been reopened after an earlier closure following an accident.

The A690 eastbound was shut at the Western Hill junction, with a diversion in place to Chester Road.

One vehicle is thought to have been involved in the accident.

The road closure came amid increased traffic in the Sunderland area in the lead-up to tonight's Beyonce concert at the Stadium of Light.

The accident was reported to police at 5.42pm, with the road closed until just before 7pm.
