POLICE are appealing for information following a collision in Burnley which resulted in three people being seriously injured.

Officers were called at around 9:45pm yesterday (Wednesday 7th February) to reports of a collision on Crown Point Road, Burnley.

A Fiat Punto was travelling along Crown Point Road, away from Burnley, when it has left the road, colliding with a fence and a dry stone wall.
