Northumbria Police said there had been no injuries and the fire service were at the scene.

We were called to this earlier today but thankfully it appears nobody was in the car at the time and there haven't been reports of any injuries. @Tyne_Wear_FRS are at the scene to recover the vehicle now ? ?
