The B5304 between Wigton and Red Dial was shut to traffic after two separate one-vehicle crashes.

The first happened at around 7.25am when a silver Toyota Yaris left the road a quarter of a mile out of Wigton.

The driver was said to have received minor injuries.

Shortly afterwards, a red Nissan Primera car crashed at the same location.

Emergency crews and utility companies attended the scene.

A police spokesman said the road would be closed for around two hours.
