UPDATE: The road has now been cleared.

A road between Whalley and Billington has been blocked after a delivery van crashed into a set of railings.

Local police officer PC Keates took to social media to ask drivers to avoid the area until 5.30pm while the vehicle is recovered.

He said: "Painter Wood Corner at Whalley/Billington is currently blocked please avoid for the next hour or so whilst recovery attends."

Officers confirmed later that nobody was injured and the incident was caused by a miscalculation by the driver at a corner.

They added the vehicle was within height and weight size limits on the road.
