EMERGENCY services are at the scene after an Argos lorry found itself wedged on top of a sports car following a crash in Darlington.

Around lunch time today (Saturday, July 24) a grey Porsche got stuck under the lorry on Victoria Road at the Sainsbury's exit in the town.

The Northern Echo:

Police at the scene confirmed that no one was injured in the incident but an officer said both drivers had been left 'very shaken'.

Police shut both lanes on one side of Victoria Road, while the side heading towards the town remains open.

Shoppers leaving Sainsbury’s in their cars are being directed out of the car park via what would normally be the entrance to the store.

Traffic is very heavy and queues have built up, but police are directing cars away from the closed section of Victoria Road at the Barker and Stonehouse roundabout.

The tailback caused by the crash stretches back to the traffic light junction at Parkgate, but the queue is moving.
