The B1363 south of Sutton on the Forest was closed this morning after a road accident.

Two vehicles were involved in the collision, which happened just before 10am, and police have confirmed that two motorcyclists were taken to York District Hospital for precautionary check-ups.

The road reopened later in the morning, once recovery had taken place.

Another collision closed one lane of the A1 northbound at junction 47. A vehicle collided with the central reservation earlier this morning, and although there were no injuries a diesel spill on the road led to the outside lane being closed for a time.
