A man had to be cut free following a car crash at the junction of Whitegate Drive and Condor Grove in Blackpool.

The road was closed following the smash, which happened at around 9.40pm and involved at least one car, a Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said.

Firefighters called to the scene alongside the police and ambulance services used hydraulic equipment to release the man, who was taken to hospital, the spokesman added.

The number four bus service was diverted both ways via Hornby Road and Park Road, Blackpool Transport said.
