A BUSY road in Morpeth town centre has been partly closed following a major incident this afternoon.

A New Holland tractor carrying bales of hay on a trailer was heading into town when it turned on its side coming out of Pottery Bank into Newgate Street just before 2pm.

This caused damage to a number of parked cars in the vicinity and one on the road, but no-one was seriously injured.

The road is closed between the junction with Dogger Bank and the junction with Manchester Street. Diversions are in place.
