A&E delays at James Cook Hospital in Middlesbrough
Health bosses on Teesside have asked people to try and avoid going to an accident and emergency department because of delays.
The ward at the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough was experiencing "unprecedented numbers" of patients on Sunday, South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said.
Patients with minor injuries are facing long waits.
The trust advised people to contact the out-of-hours GP service.
