Stories in brief

Bridge crash

A lane on Greyhound Bridge in Lancaster was blocked for a short time on Monday morning after two cars collided.

No one was injured in the incident, but damage was caused to the red Seat Ibiza and the black Ford Fiesta.

The collision occurred just before 7.30am.

Missing couple

Morecambe and Knott End coastguard teams were called out by police to a “despondent” person on the beach at Morecambe. As the search progressed in the early hours of Tuesday, rescue teams believed two people were missing. But after an hour-and-a-half searching the promenade from VVV to Heysham, there were no sightings and both teams were stood down.
