Police have confirmed that a woman who was in a crash on the A1 this morning has died.

Officers believe she is local and say her next of kin have been informed.

The 27 year old's car collided with a tree on the A1 in North Yorkshire this morning. The car aquaplaned before leaving the road and hitting the tree just south of Catterick.

"We were called just after six o'clock to a traffic accident on the A1. It's a serious accident. A car has left the road and gone into a tree.

"At the moment it's very early stages of the investigation. But we do believe the weather conditions have played a significant part in what's happened."

– Sergeant John Lumbard, from North Yorkshire Police
