A BUSY section of the A19 was closed after a multi-vehicle crash.

A stretch southbound of the dual carriageway between Peterlee and Castle Eden was shut following the incident at around 7.30am on Tuesday which is believed to have involved three vehicles, including a van.

Traffic backed up past Peterlee on the southbound section with motorists facing delays of up to two hours.

It was also slow on the northbound side as drivers looked to see what had happened.
