MOTORISTS faced delays in Ilkeston on Friday after two crashes happened on the same road just 35 minutes apart.

The first happened at the junction of Heanor Road and Wardlow Road at about 12.30pm when a white Mercedes van and a silver Citroen C5 collided.

At 1.05pm, just down the hill in Heanor Road, a black Renault Scenic and a black Skoda Fabia collided.

No one was injured in the first crash but the female driver of the Renault was checked over by paramedics on the scene.

Both vehicles were recovered.

Police officers directed traffic at the scene.
