A set of traffic lights has fallen over and is blocking traffic near the A6 in Preston.

The stricken lights are causing chaos in Black Bull Lane, near the junction with A6 Garstang Road in Fulwood this afternoon (September 13).

According to AA, the traffic light has fallen onto the northbound side of the road at the left-turn junction of Black Bull Lane.
