Work is continuing to reopen the route and diversions are in place.

A motorist had to be rescued yesterday from the roof of his car after driving through a deep pool of water believing it to be a small puddle. Firefighters kept the 58-year-old from getting soaked using an inflatable sledge after the incident at Whistlebridge, near Harburn.
