A serious accident has led to a section of the A19 on North Tyneside being closed.

The road in Willington is closed northbound between Holystone Roundabout and the A1056 Killingworth Way junction.

A diversion is in operation - Northbound traffic should exit onto the A186 eastbound and follow the solid triangle symbol on local signs, via the B1322 northbound to re-join the A19 at the Killingworth Interchange.
