DELAYS: Motorists faced tailbacks on the A19

COMMUTERS faced traffic chaos after several incidents north and south-bound on the A19.

Police say there was a three-car smash on the south-bound carriageway of the A19 near to the Bracken Hill turn-off for Peterlee, around 8am.

A Ford Focus, a Fiesta van and a Fiesta were in collision and ambulance paramedics were called to take some of the people involved to hospital for minor injuries.

There were also a number of shunts north-bound in the same area, said a spokeswoman for Durham Police, and these caused huge delays with tailbacks stretching to the south of Hartlepool.
