A BROKEN down vehicle caused some minor issues on the A1 earlier this afternoon (Monday) after it blocked part of the carriageway.

The incident was first reported by Traffic Scotland shortly before 3pm.

The vehicle was partially blocking the eastbound carriageway between Tranent and Gladsmuir but traffic seemed to be coping well at the time.

About 10 minutes later, the incident was cleared and all lanes on the A1 are now said to be running well.
