A man and a woman, both believed to be in their mid-30s, had to be cut free from their Toyota Yaris by firefighters.

Three other people, who had been travelling in a Ford Focus and a Vauxhall Vectra, were also hurt.

All were taken to hospital by ambulance suffering from suspected neck and spinal injuries.
