A 17-year-old girl has died and two men seriously injured in a horror car crash on Christmas Eve.

The teenager died in hospital after the deadly collision between a blue Fiat Punto - in which she was a passenger - and a white Mini Cooper on a country road near Cockermouth in Cumbria last night.

The 18-year-old driver of the Punto is in a serious condition in hospital.

The Mini Cooper driver, a 23-year-old local man, was also rushed to hospital with serious injuries.

The road between Tallentire and Gilcrux was closed at 5.15pm before it was reopened at midnight.

An investigation has been launched.
