The Woodhead Pass was closed this afternoon after four vehicles were involved in a collision on the A628 Woodhead Pass.

The collision happened between Tintwistle and the junction of the B6105 at Torside Reservoir.

Four vehicles – a Transit van, a DAF lorry, a Volvo S40 and a Ford Ka – were involved in the incident which happened at 12.25pm this afternoon.

A number of the occupants of the vehicles sustained injuries – understood in one case to be serious – with an air ambulance also called to the scene.

Local diversions were set up with drivers asked to avoid the area as police investigated the scene of the crash and arrangements were made to recover the vehicles.

The road is expected to remain closed into this evening.
