One lane is currently blocked and traffic is said to move very slowly at the A182 junction in Cold Hesledon, because of an accident involving two cars.

Earlier this morning a crash - thought to involve up to five vehicles - caused delays at Castle Eden between the A181 junction and Bellows Burn Lane, Hutton Henry.
