Traffic was brought to a standstill on Friday tea time after a car ploughed into a bus shelter in Carleton.

The incident happened around 5pm on Poulton Road, close to the Castle Gardens pub.

Eyewitness Andrew Roberts, who supplied this dramatic picture, said: "It's gridlock."

A spokesman for Lancashire Police said there were no reports of any injuries or of any other vehicles being involved.
