A spokesman for Ribble Valley Police said: "There is a large crane stuck and partially blocking Lythe Fell Road near Slaidburn. For safety, the road is likely to be closed or be impassable for most vehicles throughout the day whilst the recovery happens.

"If you need to use this route, plan your alternate journey before setting off and leave plenty of time. We'll keep you updated and let you know once the road is cleared and thank you for your patience in the meantime."
