A landslip has caused part of a road to collapse near Rothbury in Northumberland.

The damage to the B6344 happened on Boxing Day.

Concrete barriers have been put in place to prevent drivers from using the road.

The land is still moving, and diversions have been set up.

The road between Rothbury and Pauperhaugh is expected to remain closed for several weeks.
