The crash is one of several to happen this year, with the junction being labelled a "death trap" by a local resident.

One crash earlier this year saw a woman in her 80s taken to hospital after a car was on its roof.

A police spokesperson told the ECHO : "We were called to Portland Street, Southport at around 6pm to reports of a collision involving a Honda and Hyundai.

"The road was closed at the junction with Cemetery Road and was reopened around 7.30pm. Slight injuries only and both vehicles recovered."
