TRAFFIC travelling along a busy road through Washington is being diverted after a series of crashes.

Police were called to the A194 at just after 5.30pm, today, after five cars were involved in seperate collisions along the stretch of road.

Officers have closed the road north bound just prior to the Follingsby Interchange and diversions are in place while recovery takes place.

It is believed those involved have suffered only minor injuries.
