Caledonian Road in Hartlepool has been closed to traffic temporarily on public safety grounds amid fears over the structural condition of a house.

A short stretch of the road north of its junction with Oakland Avenue has been closed in both directions by Hartlepool Borough Council highways officials pending investigations into the condition of the privately-owned property.

Kieran Bostock, the Council’s Assistant Director for Place Management, said: “We are working as quickly as possible to establish the condition of the property. The road closure is a necessary precaution whilst these investigations are ongoing. Motorists are asked to avoid the area and follow signed diversions that have been put in place.”
