A PARKED car rolled into the middle of a busy junction, causing tailbacks.

The car was parked close to Crompton Way.

However it seems that the handbrake had not been applied properly and the car rolled into a busy junction, just outside Astley Bridge Police Station.

The car was causing traffic to back up on the road.

Fire crews from Bolton North Fire Station arrived at the scene to move the car just after 3pm.

A spokesman for Bolton North Fire Station said: "We are just trying to shift it and get the traffic moving."
