Motorists were advised to avoid Lache Lane on Tuesday evening (February 16) rush hour, following a collision between Overleigh roundabout and Vincent Drive.

Emergency services attended the scene of the incident, which was believed to involved one vehicle and was reported at 4.18pm.

A spokeswoman for Cheshire police said one woman was taken to the Countess of Chester Hospital.

Lache Lane was closed in both directions, causing congestion, but reopened later on Tuesday evening.

A broken-down vehicle on the eastbound carriageway of the M56 near junction 15 was also causing disruption for commuters heading from Chester towards Warrington.
