Delays are expected in West Craven this afternoon after a lorry shed part of its load in Barnoldswick.

The load of earth, rubble and clay material covered a stretch of the northbound lane of Kelbrook Road into Barnoldswick close to West Craven High School.

Posting on Facebook, police said "a considerable amount of debris has been lost" from a wagon and left on the road and anticipated it may cause "some traffic delays for the next couple of hours".

Lancashire County Council are currently on the scene cleaning up the debris.
