A BUSY A-Road was closed for almost three hours this morning (Wednesday, May 15), as two vehicles collided.

The A361 Frome Road was closed in both directions from around 7:15am in the village of Rode, after a collision occurred and blocked the B3109 Bradford Road near its junction with the A-Road.

Traffic queued from Rode Hill to Church Lane as a result of the crash, whilst police and ambulance services both attended.

Both vehicles involved were recovered and the road re-opened just before 9:50am, and one person was sent to a minor injuries unit.
