A two-year-old boy and a 31-year-old woman have died after a crash between a car and a lorry.

It happened around 10:30 last night in Warwickshire.

The car driver - a 35-year-old man - and another passenger - a six-year-old girl - were taken to hospital with injuries which are not thought to be serious.

The dead and injured were travelling in a blue Nissan Qashqai when the collision happened, coming off the M6 at junction 1 onto the A426 near Churchover.

Warwickshire Police Inspector Andrew Bennett said:

This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with the families of the deceased at this time. Despite the attempts of other drivers and paramedics, the woman and boy were declared dead at the scene.

We will have officers at the scene today as we continue to investigate how this collision happened.

There is likely to be some disruption in the area while we investigate. I would like to thank local people for their support and patience.

I would urge anyone who witnessed the collision or saw either of the vehicles involved in the moments leading up to the incident to contact us."
