A FLAT tyre on a transporter has caused two-mile tailbacks for motorists.

Drivers from Hartlepool and East Durham heading south have faced disruption on Thursday morning after a car transporter sustained a tyre blow-out on the southbound Tees flyover at Middlesbrough around 9.25am.

At noon there were still tailbacks as far as Billingham while recovery services were expected.
