Three people were injured after a car hit a tree on the Shropshire border.

Emergency crews rushed to Newcastle Road, in Woore, after the collision happened shortly before 2.40am.

A man had to be cut out of his car by fire crews following the crash.

Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service teams used specialist gear to release the male from the vehicle. He was treated at the scene by the ambulance service.

Crews from Market Drayton and Wellington along with an operations officer and the police attended.

Claire Brown, a West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman, said: "Crews arrived to find a car, with three occupants inside, which had collided with a tree.

"Ambulance staff worked closely with fire service colleagues at the scene. One man sustained serious injuries and was given advanced trauma care by ambulance staff and medics before being taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Royal Stoke University Hospital.

"A second man also sustained serious injuries and a third patient had less serious injuries. Both were taken to the same hospital for further treatment.”
