A major Blackpool road remains closed following a serious accident.

Police and fire officers have cordoned off Devonshire Road in North Shore, between Northgate and Bispham Roundabout, to investigate the cause of the crash, which they say left ‘people with serious injuries including fractures’.

The accident happened at 9.55am on Sunday.

A police spokeswoman said officers were waiting to lift a car, after reports a taxi driver was forced to swerve, before colliding with a wall.

The road will remain closed until officers complete their investigation and remove the damaged car.

The accident is the second on Devonshire Road this weekend, after two cars collided on the road on Saturday.

Anyone who saw either accident is asked to call police on 101.
