Two cars were involved in the accident at around 7pm on April 30, which luckily involved only minor injuries for one of the drivers.

Both cars were badly damaged in the incident at the junction of Blackfriars Road and The Cut. Blackfriars Road was closed to northbound traffic, although re-opened around an hour later.

A police spokesperson said: “It wasn’t too serious in terms of injuries. One driver received minor injuries and no arrests have been made.”
