THE Liverpool bound carriageway of the A580 at Windle Island has been reopened following an accident.

The carriageway was closed from the busy junction after a black Chevrolet and a Peugeot Boxer were involved in a collision at around 11am this morning near Catchdale, Moss Lane.

No one was injured and the vehicles and debris have now been cleared.

A motorcyclist was taken to Whiston Hospital with a wrist injury after colliding with the back of a Ford Fiesta as a result of the traffic caused by the original crash.
