A lorry driver has died after falling ill at the wheel on the A6 Chapel bypass this morning.

The driver, who has not yet been identified but is not believed to be local, was taken ill near to the Fallow Deer pub just before 9am this morning.

The bypass was closed in both directions to allow the air ambulance to land at the scene. The road is now fully re-opened.
