Two road traffic accidents saw cars on their roofs less than five miles apart on the A59 in the space of three days.

In the early hours of Friday morning, an Audi A4 landed on its roof after colliding with a lamp post and a road sign between the McDonalds and Whalley Road roundabouts. The driver sustained minor injuries.

On Sunday afternoon, a silver Vauxhall Zafira travelling past the Dunbia abattoir near Gisburn was involved in an accident which again saw the vehicle being flipped on to its roof. The four passengers, including two children, were treated at the scene for minor injuries.
