A tanker spillage has closed the A19 southbound junction with the A689 near Wolviston on Teesside tonight (January 27).
Emergency services attended and the liquid has been identified.
Although it is flammable, police say there are no issues for local residents or drivers.
The junction is likely to be closed into the night.
The Government has changed its advice to motorists to top-up petrol tanks. It follows two days of panic buying. The official word from Downing Street is the situation is no longer urgent after the Unite union ruled out a strike by tanker drivers over Easter.
