TRAFFIC lights have been damaged in a two-car crash in Poole.

Police were called to the crash in Alder Road at its junction with Yarmouth Road at 9.03am on Monday.

Minor injuries were reported.

A set of traffic lights was also damaged in the crash and BCP Council were informed.

The traffic lights remain out of action, with motorists reporting ‘traffic chaos’ in the area. 

A spokesperson for BCP Council said: “A traffic signal pole on Alder Road at the junction with Yarmouth Road has been damaged in a road traffic collision.

“The rest of the signals are operating normally, but motorists and pedestrians should exercise caution around the junction while works are ongoing.”
