Part of Alwyn Road was blocked off earlier this afternoon (Monday) after a car collided with a telegraph pole.

Onlookers got in touch to say that police were at the scene re-directing traffic.

A Warwickshire Police spokesman said: “Police were called to Alwyn Road, Bilton at around 2.50pm after a single car collision involving a telegraph pole.

“It appears that a grey Volkswagen Polo has collided with the telegraph pole and that this is now blocking part of the road.”

He added that the female driver of the car was reportedly uninjured.

The road is now clear after the telegraph pole debris was moved onto the side of the pavement (pictured) and traffic seems to be moving freely in both directions.
