A BUS has got stuck after hitting a railway bridge in Accrington, and firefighters are working to free it.

Police were called to the accident in Lonsdale Road, at 4.38pm, and are dealing with traffic in the area. No injuries have been reported.

Northern Rail services between Blackburn and Colne and Hebden Bridge have been delayed by up to 30 minutes.

Carolyn Watson of Northern Rail said: “We were alerted just before 5pm that there had been a bridge strike in Lonsdale Road, Accrington.

“In these instances, the line is closed and Northern Rail engineers are sent out to check the bridge structure, to make sure it is safe to transport something across.”
