Coast Road chaos causes nightmare for drivers – Video

DRIVERS trying to get from Newcastle to the coast were forced to find alternative routes after the Coast Road was closed due to flooding.

The junction at Chillingham Road was the worst affected as the rain water gathered in the underpass leaving drivers to take detours while police officers were on scene redirecting the traffic.
