THE A65 has now reopened following the earlier collision between Crooklands and Kirkby Lonsdale.

Traffic was at a standstill this afternoon following the incident at Spital Farm, which involved two cars.

It is thought the collision occured at around 2.15pm.

Police blocked the road in both directions, while firefighters, paramedics and an air ambulance also attended.

Nobody has been available at Cumbria Police to give out further information but a spokesman for the force took to Twitter shortly after the crash occured to say it was 'not believed' to be serious.
