The road was closed from 9am on Sunday (20 November) and this is causing a number of delays on the Ringway and surrounding city centre roads.

A spokesman from the fire service confirmed they had been called but said Preston Police were leading the incident. Firefighters helped take police officers up onto the roof of the jeweller’s.
