Fire crews made the scene safe before police reopened the road at around 10am.

The road closure caused some delays and congestion in the area as shoppers heading for the retail park were diverted around the scene.

A fire service spokesman added: "Two fire engines from Blackpool and Bispham attended a road traffic collision on Holyoake Avenue, Blackpool.

"The collision involved two vehicles with one casualty medically confined to a vehicle.
