Four air ambulances and six land ambulances were called to a "serious collision" in Warwickshire which has left four teenagers with "life-threatening injuries".

A woman and two children were also reported to have been "seriously injured" and taken to hospital.

It is believed to have happened at about 4.05pm on Friday afternoon on the B4035 Campden Road, just to the west of the Fosse Way.

Warwickshire Police said the collision involved a Ford Fiesta and a Fiat 500.

Officers said three teenagers in the Fiesta sustained life-threatening injuries and were airlifted to hospital where they currently remain. They say a fourth male in the same vehicle also sustained serious injuries.

Three people from the Fiat were also taken to hospital, said police.

Two Midlands Air Ambulances and one air ambulance each from the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance were called out.

Six ambulances, three paramedic officers and two senior paramedic officers were also sent to the scene from West Midlands Ambulance Service and South Western Ambulance Services.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found two cars with very significant damage.

“There were four teenagers in the first car - three men and a woman - who were all left with life-threatening injuries. 

"All four received advanced trauma care from the enhanced care teams on the air ambulances.

“A man and woman were separately airlifted to the major trauma centre (MTC) at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
