Work has begun at a key road junction on the A1 near Morpeth.

Motorists are being warned that resurfacing work has begun on the roundabouts and entry and exit slip roads at Stannington.

There will be no access to either of the two roundabouts at the junction and slip roads between 8pm and 6am for 11 nights from Monday.

Any drivers seeking to use the main road junction overnight during this period will be directed to follow one of four diversions.
