Six people have been treated by paramedics after a three-car smash in Staffordshire.

One of the cars had been forced off the road in the crash, which happened at around 9.30am today, and was found down an embankment off the Ashbourne Road in Uttoxeter.

The front seat passenger of that car, a woman, was airlifted to hospital suffering back and chest injuries, while the driver and two teenage passengers - all also women - were taken to hospital with other injuries including seat belt wounds.

A 17-year-old girl from one of the other cars was taken to hospital after hurting her neck in the crash, while an 11-year-old boy, who had been in the third car, was treated at the scene for a minor seatbelt injury.
