A CRASH just outside of Bolton town centre is causing long delays this morning (Tuesday).

The collision involved two cars and occurred just after 9am on the junction of Chorley New Road and Chorley Old Road.

Witnesses say the disruption is causing queues back into the town centre, with some delays on Marsden Road and Topp Way.

An ambulance was sent to the scene alongside at least two police cars and part of Chorley Old Road was closed.

A spokesman for the North West Ambulance Service confirmed they had attended but said the ambulance "left the scene without taking anyone to hospital".
