A man in his 20s has suffered serious head injuries after his car left the A47 in Peterborough and rolled into trees.

Police, fire and ambulance crews along with the Magpas air ambulance attended the scene of the crash at 1.25pm this afternoon, Wednesday May 4, after the car left the eastbound carriageway at Bretton Gate, junction 16.

The patient was given pain relief, and the team worked with the fire service to extract him from the car.
