Police have made an arrest following a crash on the Prom at Bispham this morning.

Officers were called to Queen's Promenade, close to the junction with Madison Avenue, following a collision between a silver Vauxhall Astra travelling southbound, and a black BMW.

The driver of the Astra was held after officers suspected they were under the influence of either drugs or alcohol, a spokesman for the Road Policing Unit said.

The road was left blocked after the crash, which left both cars badly damaged.
