THE main road between Bacup and Weir has been closed after an accident.

A Nissan Micra collided with a Land Rover Freelander in Plantation View just before 3pm, police said.

Officers found one of the drivers was in a little discomfort and so an ambulance was called, but the injuries are not thought to be serious.

Police have closed Burnley Road temporarily while the incident is investigated and the road is cleared.
