A police incident is causing traffic problems on the A64 this afternoon (Friday, 11 August)

We have few further details, but the Coastliner bus service tweeted at 1.57pm: “Due to a police incident on the A64 and the associated major delays Coastliner 843 and 840 need to divert between Malton and York in both directions.”
