Bank holiday travellers faced extra road chaos after a collision on the troubled Penwortham by-pass.

The two-vehicle crash, which happened at around 2pm this afternoon on the Penwortham bridge, caused tailbacks affecting traffic travelling towards Preston city centre and along the busy Strand Road towards Blackpool.

Changes to the traffic flow on the by-pass have been the subject of complaints by motorists and have been blamed for several accidents in the past few weeks.
