A ROAD in Church was blocked following a two-car smash earlier today.

A silver Vauxhall Astra and a grey Nissan Micra collided at the junction of Blackburn Road and Market Street at around 12.55pm, police said.

An ambulance was called to the scene, although nobody is believed to have been seriously hurt, a police spokesman added.

Recovery vehicles attended at around 2pm to remove the badly damaged cars.
