Emergency services have responded after a serious crash in Harrogate which resulted in a road being closed.

Police and paramedics were called to Cold Bath Road earlier this evening after a car overturned and landed on its roof.

The road was closed in both directions until shortly after 7pm, with drivers being urged to avoid the area.

A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said she could not comment further as the investigation was ongoing.

But a member of the Roads Policing Group later said on Twitter that the driver of the car had escaped with minor injuries.
