A1(M) reopens after earlier accident

The A1(M) has now fully reopened after a closure earlier today (Thursday).

The northbound carriageway was closed between Barnsdale Bar and the A1(M) junction 40 near Darrington after a lorry overturned in severe gale force winds.

All lanes have now re-opened but traffic is queueing back to junction 35 with the M18.
