Heavy snow hit the borough overnight, which has led to significant delays across Chorley for motorists.

Subsequently, a Chorley Council spokesman has said "we may struggle to access all the roads due for bin collections today due to the snow and freezing weather".

They added: "If your bin isn't emptied today please leave it out and we will try again later in the day and/or tomorrow - please don't report it as a missed collection."

No details of the affected areas have been released yet.
