Motorists travelling through Leyland this morning experienced delays due to a tree blocking a town road.

Delays were experienced in Dalehead Road close to Runshaw College around 7.15am.

Passerby Cheryl Lewis said: "I think I was the first person to report it to the police.

"They told me that they’d send someone out to it, but I haven’t driven past since so I don’t know what time it was cleared."

Cheryl added that the tree had also hit a parked car.
