A SECTION of the A1 south of Morpeth is expected to remain closed until later this evening after a man was killed in an accident early Wednesday afternoon.
The main road has been shut in both directions since the accident at 2.15pm.
It was reported a vehicle travelling south overturned following a collision and landed on the northbound carriageway just before the turn-off to Stannington.
Two other occupants of the vehicle were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The A1 remains closed from Blagdon and Seaton Burn with diversions in place, including along Station Road.
Motorists are advised to find an alternative route.
