Both vehicles have reportedly left the road. The Northern Ireland Air Ambulance is currently in attendance.

There is also huge traffic congestion in the area, as traffic is being diverted from the scene of a bar fire in Armagh city.

Lorries have been caught in the jam and are unable to turn.

Motorists are once again advised to avoid the area completely as emergency crews deal with incident.
