Monsoon weather causes traffic hold-ups

An electric storm brought flash flooding and traffic hold-ups to parts of Preston in the afternoon rush hour on Tuesday.

The usual blackspots of Lower Penwortham and the Tickled Trout junction at Samlesbury saw long queues, with traffic on Blackpool Road, Golden Way and Leyland Road also slowed to a crawl.
