This morning six people are still being treated in hospital for injuries after the collision - two in a critical condition.

A quick response paramedic was quickly on the scene and declared the situation to be a major incident.

Seven accident and emergency crews were dispatched along with two rapid response paramedics, one emergency doctor and five ambulance officers.
