A man was freed from a car by firefighters after a collision with a lorry.

The Peugeot and lorry travelling in opposite directions crashed on a bend on Coupland Road, Hindley Green, at around 11.30am today.

Four people were in the car and three were able to get out themselves, but one man was cut out by fire crews from Hindley.

He was taken to hospital for treatment to a head injury, which was not thought to be life-threatening.

The driver of the lorry was not hurt.

Coupland Road was closed at both ends but has since reopened.
