A woman had to be cut free from her car after an accident on a Hampshire road this afternoon.

The 46-year-old, from West Wellow, was freed from her black BMW Coupe following the two-vehicle collision in Bursledon.

The female driver was taken to hospital with suspected spinal injuries, after the smash involving a white Mercedes Benz van at the junction between Bridge Road and Oakhill.

The driver of the Mercedes van, a 46-year-old man from Hedge End, is believed to be unhurt.

Emergency services were called to the scene following the collision at 1.08pm.

Two fire crews, two police cars and a crash investigation team remain at the scene, with traffic queuing back for over a mile down Bridge Road.
