Traffic Nightmares Around Hexham Bridge

All lanes of the Hexham Bridge have re-opened following last night's crane accident.

The 45-tonne crane toppled over coming onto the northbound bridge at around 6:30pm.

Police are investigating if speed was a factor.

The bridge needed extensive repairs, while it took firefighters several hours to clean up a large oil spill.

Despite the bridge re-opening, there are still delays stretching back several kilometres in all directions approaching the bridge.
