Their car, which was travelling north up the Birmingham Road, was in collision with another car travelling across the junction from Arden Street to Clopton Road.

The people carrier flipped over in the incident, shattering its windows. It is believed the only occupant of the other car was the male driver.

A paramedic on the scene told the Herald that nobody was injured in the crash.

The northbound carriageway of the Birmingham Road was closed while a recovery team righted the people carrier before taking it away.

Diversions were put in place during rush hour and traffic began to back up in town, but the road was cleared and reopened shortly after 5.30pm.

A recovery team clears away the Peugeot.
