An 11 year old boy has been airlifted to hospital with life threatening injuries following a collision on the A69 between Greenhead and Haltwhistle. A Range Rover left the road and crashed onto the railway line. It received a glancing blow from a passing freight train.
The train stopped further down the line and there are no reported injuries from those on board the train. Police believe there was a second car involved and they are treating it as a crime scene.
