ONE Lane of the A19 northbound was closed for emergency services to deal with a crash between a fuel tanker and a car.

The collision happened at around 11.15am on Monday on the north-bound carriageway of the A19, near to Elwick in Hartlepool.

A white BMW car and a petrol tanker were involved in the crash.

A spokeswoman for Cleveland Police said officers do not believe anyone was injured, however, the force of the smash left a lot of debris on the road forcing one lane to be closed.
