Police are currently at the scene of a three-vehicle road traffic collision on the A1065 between Barton Mills and Eriswell.

Officers were called at 2.30pm this afternoon, Friday 30 December, to reports of the collision on the road around a mile north of Barton Mills. It was reported that one vehicle was on its side in hedges/ trees.

Police, fire and ambulance personnel attended and a woman that was in the vehicle on its side has been airlifted to Addenbrookes hospital with serious injuries.
