Fake severed hand leads to A19 road closure
Police shut the road near Middlesbrough to investigate a bloody hand and wrist that was found to be a prop
Police who closed a major road after a driver spotted a suspicious item have said it was a realistic-looking fake severed hand.
The Cleveland and Durham Roads Policing Unit shut the A19 near Middlesbrough on Wednesday evening while investigations were carried out, warning that traffic flow would be slower due to officers on the carriageway.
