Emergency services at five-car crash

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

The crash happened just before 1.10pm, police say.

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.
