A WIGAN road is temporarily closed following a road traffic collision.

Orrell Road, at the junction of Fishergate, in Pemberton, is closed for a short while after a woman was struck by a HGV.

It was thought she was crossing the road and the HGV knocked her over at 4.25pm on Friday.

The woman escaped unharmed, but the police shut the road off to carry out an investigation.
