Work to cut congestion and improve safety in a Northumberland village has got under way.

Work has started on the £26m A69 Haydon Bridge bypass, which will significantly reduce the number of vehicles passing through the village.

The bypass includes a multi-span viaduct over the South Tyne River and the Newcastle-Carlisle railway, and construction of three more bridges.
