A main road between Preston and Blackpool was closed for several hours on Friday evening by flooding.

Fylde police issued a alert to drivers via social media early on Friday evening advising that that diversions had been set up on the A583 at Newton with Scales, near Kirkham, close to the Bell and Bottle pub.

"The road is closed in both directions due to flooding," they said.

A further alert followed to say that the road had reopened shortly after 9.30pm.
