Tea-time traffic was disrupted on Friday in Clitheroe after a barrier across the railway line was repaired.

Queues built up in Whalley Road and Moor Lane as cars were prevented from entering Woone Lane close to where the repair was taking place.

Network Rail workers spent around one and a half hours repairing the barrier which was broken after a lorry clipped it at around 3.30pm.

A police spokesman said: "There was no danger to the public but we had to prevent traffic from building up near the barrier as both freight and passenger trains pass through here.''
