Two people were taken to hospital after a crash in Southampton city centre last night.

Emergency services were alerted to the accident in Commercial Road involving a single decker First bus and two cars - a Renault Clio and a Vauxhall Meriva - at 7.15pm.

A total of 14 firefighters from St Mary's and Redbridge Hill stations, were called to the scene and cut the drivers from their cars.

Both of the motorists - one a 19-year-old man and the other a 52-year-old man - were taken to Southampton General Hospital by the South Central Ambulance Service.

A passenger on the bus also took themselves to hospital for treatment on a neck injury.

A police spokesman described their injuries as "minor".

Police say the driver of one of the vehicles - although they have not confirmed which one - has been arrested but they are not disclosing any more details at the moment.
