RUSH hour traffic was delayed after two vehicles were involved in a head-on collision.

It happened at the junction of Dunkenhalgh Way and Manor Place, close to the old fire station on Hyndburn Road, Church.

Police said a blue Citroen C3 collided with a grey Seat Leon at around 5pm on Wednesday.

Henry Street was partially blocked and traffic queued for an hour, before both vehicles were removed just after 6pm.

Nobody was seriously injured in the crash, but at least one person suffered whiplash and was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital.
