Inquiries into lorry driver death in Northumberland
A lorry driver died when his vehicle left the A1 in Northumberland.
The 59-year-old man, from Preston in Lancashire, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash in Belford on Saturday night.
Although the area had sub-zero temperatures at the time, Northumbria Police have not linked the death to the ongoing cold snap.
A force spokesman said the vehicle left the southbound carriageway and ended up in a grass verge on the opposite side.
No other vehicles were involved.
The man was driving a Stobart vehicle, which was pulling a Tesco trailer.
No-one from the Cumbria-based Stobart group was available for comment.
An investigation into the incident is under way.
