Two 10ft concrete blocks have fallen onto the westbound side of the road when a trailer overturned after a collision near Norton-in-Derwent this afternoon.

Police have called a forklift truck to attend the scene and remove them.

Diversions are in place through Malton to rejoin the A64 at the A169 interchange.
