Since early this morning, high sided vehicles have been asked to avoid the A66 from Kirkby Stephen, eastbound, due to high winds.

At 12:12 pm today (27 December 2013) police received a report that a caravan had been blown onto its side, blocking both lanes on the A66 at North Stainmore, Kirkby Stephen.

No one is believed to have been injured but there will be delays in the area while recovery takes place. Motorists are asked to avoid the area and seek alternative routes.

Police continue to warn high sided vehicles to avoid travelling on the A66 due to the high winds and hazardous conditions.
