Peel road back open after crash

Gridlock on alternative routes

The main road between Douglas and Peel has re-opened, following a crash this afternoon.

A stretch of the A1 between Crosby Post Office and Ballacraine crossroads was shut shortly before 4pm, while emergency services - including police and fire crews - dealt with the scene.

Motorists were urged to avoid the area, leading to substantial delays on the Archallagan back road - exacerbated by reports of large vehicles blocking the route.

Police have thanked all who worked hard to clear the scene in a little under two hours.
