A man is believed to have died in what police have called a "serious incident" at a stone quarry in Northumberland.
A police investigation is under way into the incident which happened at Harden Quarry, in Biddlestone, near Rothbury, at around 10.45am on Wednesday, October 7.
A tractor is thought to have plummeted 50ft into the quarry before bursting into flames. Lafarge Tarmac, which owns the site, has declined to comment.
However, Rothbury and Coquetdale Councillor Steven Bridgett issued the following statement:
Northumberland County Council says the B6344 road at Crag End, Rothbury, will not now re-open until early 2016, more than three years after it was closed because of a landslip.
The damage happened on Boxing Day 2012.
Repair work, costing £9m, didn't start until February this year, with the road scheduled to re-open by late Spring.
That schedule was later put back until November, because the job was proving harder than engineers originally thought it would.
That target has now been put back even further.

People in Rothbury hope visitors will use alternative routes into the town after a landslip looks like closing a road for more than a year.
A road that was closed at Rothbury at the end of December after a landslip is continuing to slide away.
The closure is also causing problems for residents and traders who say that the closure is costing them thousands of pounds.
The road has been deemed "unsafe" to measure as it continues to fall away.
Residents cut off by a landslip on a road near Rothbury in Northumberland say the ground is still too unstable to assess the damage. Sean and Lou Renwick live at Cragend Farm near the B6344 which has been slipping since December. Sean said,
Residents in Northumberland could be cut off from Rothbury for at least the rest of the year following a landslip in December. Cragend Farm is one property near the town affected by the damaged B6344.
Local councillor Steven Bridgett says the diversion is costly to local people and businesses. The council has applied for a central government grant to help pay for repairs.
