Moor Park Avenue will also be closed between Sir Tom Finney Way and St Paul's Road.

Sgt Paul McLernon from Lancashire Police said it has come "as a result of the large attendance and a high number of expected coaches".

In a letter to residents, he added: "I hope that these arrangements do not affect access to your property unduly.

"However, I would ask that careful consideration is given to travel arrangements to and from your property within the affected times.

"We understand the inconvenience that this causes to residents and we will of course make every effort to open the roads as quickly as possible once it is safe to do so."
