Cumbria's emergency services are attending a five-vehicle crash on the A66 at Brough.

The road remains closed but an update from police states that it is likely to reopen within the next hour.

A 21-year-old man, driving a Renault Trafic van involved in the incident, has been taken to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle with non-life threatening injuries.

Two people have been cut free from vehicles by firefighters from Appleby and Kirkby Stephen who were called to the scene.

The other vehicles involved were a Renault Master van, driven by a man aged 61, an Alfa Romeo, driven by a woman, aged 48, a Vauxhall Zafira, driven by a man aged 42 and a Land Rover Freelander, driven by a 29-year-old woman.

Motorists are continued to ask to avoid the area and seek alternative routes.
