Roads misery for motorists

A JACKKNIFED lorry is causing problems for commuters this morning.

The slip road onto the A19 northbound, at the A1086 junction at Easington, is closed because of ongoing recovery work after a lorry jackknifed.

Meanwhile, one lane is blocked and there is queueing traffic on the A19 northbound on the fly over in Middlesbrough between the A66 junction and Portrack Interchange because of a broken down vehicle.

Recovery work to move the vehicle is ongoing.
