The force said one vehicle was involved in the crash and a man has been taken to hospital. The road is likely to remain shut until the afternoon.

The closure is causing delays for drivers joining the M55, with further congestion on routes around Fulwood and Broughton.

The M55 slip road at Broughton was closed earlier but has since reopened, but there remains queuing traffic from Lightfoot Lane to the motorway.
