PART of the A46 is closed after a two car crash which saw one driver airlifted to hospital.

The road is shut between the B439 Salford Priors and A44 Twyford after the smash where two cars left the carriageway.

The woman driver of one car was seriously injured and her vehicle badly damaged.

Firefighters and paramedics worked to free her from the car before she was airlifted to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

The middle-aged man driving the other car freed himself and was taken to Warwick Hospital for further treatment.

Police are on the scene and the road is expected to be shut for several hours.

Traffic is being diverted.
