Woman in hospital with spinal injuries after crash

A woman is being treated in a Newcastle hospital after she was hurt in a crash just off the A66 in Cumbria.

The 22-year-old from Penrith was transferred to the Royal Victoria Infirmary for further treatment on spinal injuries following the one-car smash on on the access road to Mungrisdale on Thursday night.

She was a front-seat passenger in the Ford Focus, driven by a 24-year-old woman from Penrith.

The driver suffered cuts and bruises while the passenger had to be freed by Keswick firefighters.

The passenger also suffered a leg injury and was initially taken to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle by ambulance. She was later transferred to Newcastle.

No. It's already clear we're not part of it

Only if we speak up and demand to be involved
