Only one car is understood to have been involved in the crash which happened around 10am on Sunday (8 January).

No one was hurt in the crash and police say a Preston man, the driver, has been arrested on suspicion of drink-driving and is helping the police with their inquiries.

Lancashire County Council said it would look at replacing the bus shelter. The cost of a bus shelter is anywhere from £4,000 upwards.
