A two-car crash left Lytham Road blocked shortly before 9am this morning.

A 25-year-old woman suffered minor back injuries in the collision, between a black Ford Focus and black Renault Clio, which also caused buses to be diverted, police said.

A spokesman for the North West Ambulance Service said the woman was given a check up by paramedics but not taken to hospital.

The road reopened as normal at around 9.40am, Blackpool Transport said, with all affected bus services returning to their usual routes.
