However, shortly before 6.30pm, traffic was said to be flowing freely on the dual carriageway once again.

Police placed traffic cones around the cars involved, which were a blue Ford Fiesta and a grey Ford Focus.

An eyewitness said the Fiesta was left off the road with the front of it in a hedge, while the Focus had a big scrape down its side.

A police spokesman said: "We were called just before 5pm.

"It is not believed that anyone was seriously injured."
