PART of Holgate Road was closed this evening following a crash between two vehicles during rush hour.

Firefighters freed two people from the crash at the junction of Holgate Road and Wilton Rise, a fire service spokesman said. 

Police were called to the scene at about 6.10pm by the ambulance service.

The two casualties were freed from a Citroen Berlingo, which had collided with a Skoda, and were taken to hospital.
