Emergency services were called to a report of a road traffic collision on the A518 Weston Road just after 6:50am on Friday 16 December.

Two HGV lorries were involved in the collision just outside the County Showground and one of the vehicles jack-knifed, blocking the carriageway.

The road was closed between Blackheath Lane, at the Knot and Plough Pub roundabout, and Within Lane. Diversions were in place and there was heavy congestion in the area for some time while the incident was dealt with. The road was closed for around 6 hours to allow for recovery of both vehicles.

One man was taken to North Staffs University Hospital by ambulance with suspected leg injuries, which are not thought to be life threatening.
