Belfast's Westlink has fully reopened after a three-vehicle crash caused disruption for rush-hour traffic.

At one stage on Friday, three lanes heading towards the M1 were closed.

Police, fire and four ambulance crews attended the scene near the Grosvenor Road bridge. One person was taken to hospital.

One of the lanes of the Westline reopened at about 18:30 BST, but there were still long delays. The final two had opened by 19:00 BST.
