A crash involving two cars temporarily closed a busy residential road.

Police were called to the junction of Kingsway and Priory Lane in Penwortham around 6pm on Monday following reports of an accident.

The road, known to be a rat run used by people to avoid traffic lights on Liverpool Road, was closed for an hour while recovery of the people carrier and Jaguar took place.
