SNOWY and icy weather conditions have caused treacherous driving conditions across East Lancashire today.

A car overturned on the A56 Haslingden bypass this morning leading to long delays.

Meanwhile traffic was diverted near Whalley because of another accident.

A VW Caddy, a Ford Fiesta and a Peugeot were involved in a minor road accident in Accrington Road near to the junction of the A59.

All three motorists were taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital for treatment following the crash at 8.57am.

Ice and snow also led to the closure of Lammack Road and Shear Brow, Blackburn, and Burnley Road at Yorkshire Street between Bacup and Todmorden.

All motorists are being advised to take extra care.
