The Birkenhead Tunnel was closed in both directions on Friday evening after a two-car crash.

The incident caused major disruption to rush-hour traffic.

Emergency services were called to the scene at around 6.15pm, with fire, police and ambulance in attendance.

Two men were outside their vehicles before fire crews attended, a fire service spokesman said.

It is unclear if anyone was injured.

The tunnel was reopened at around 7.45pm.
