A ROAD was closed for two hours after a crash and fuel spillage.

A spokeswoman for North Yorkshire Police said the collision, on the A170 in Thornton-le-Dale, on Sunday morning involved three vehicles. She added that the force was not aware of any injuries.

At around 11.30am, Pickering Police wrote on Facebook: "Police are in attendance and road closures may be implemented due to the spill and RTC. If you can avoid the A170, please do so for the current time."

Nearly two hours later, Pickering Police added: "The A170 road has reopened between Pickering and Snainton. The road has been treated, however is still likely to be slippy and we ask motorists to take care on this stretch of road."
