A narrow country road between Padiham and Sabden was blocked for several hours around teatime rush hour on Wednesday when a Satnav directed an HGV along the road and it became stuck.

Police had to close the road for several hours while the heavy goods vehicle, which had become fast close to the former Red Rock pub, was able to be moved.

The incident caused long tailbacks in the area as motorists were diverted along Whins Lane and Trapp Lane where temporary traffic lights were already in operation for some ongoing roadworks.
