A car went up in flames after it was in collision with a large lorry at the end of the M65 in Colne.

It happened before 8am today at the Junction 14 roundabout by Boundary Mill.

The wagon and red Nissan Micra collided there and the car went up in flames, so fire crews from Colne attended.

But the people in the vehicles were out when they got there - there were no injuries.

The roundabout was blocked for a while as fire crews dealt with the blaze, affecting traffic. But it was rapidly sorted out.
