Roads into Clitheroe were gridlocked this afternoon after an accident on the A59.

Traffic was at a standstill on Chatburn Road into the town after police closed the A59 in both directions between the junction of Whalley Road and the Pimlico link road.

Pendle Road is also closed at the junction of the A59 on both sides from Clitheroe and Sabden.

The accident, involving a car and a motorcycle, left three people injured just after 1pm.

Although no-one was trapped, two fire engines attended the scene and crews helped paramedics who were treating the casualties.
