A FIRE crew had to put out a blaze on the A1 in Northumberland this afternoon.

Emergency services received a call just before 1.15pm that a Ford Fiesta was on fire on the southbound carriageway at Stannington.

Police diverted traffic whilst fire officers extinguished the fire. No-one was injured during the incident.

The road fully re-opened at 2pm after the vehicle had been recovered.
