A MAIN road in Rotherham was closed causing traffic chaos after a car struck a lamppost yesterday lunchtime.

The smash involving a black Nissan GT-R happened on Centenary Way, Rotherham, at 12.40pm.

Rotherham town centre ground to a halt as ambulance and fire service vehicles responded.

Medics landed the Yorkshire Air Ambulance helicopter on the carriageway near to the New York Stadium, bringing lunchtime traffic to a standstill.
