POLICE and firefighters have been called to a four car crash on the A64 westbound carriageway at Bilborough.
The emergency services were called just before 1pm.

No one was trapped and although five people were hurt none had serious injuries, they added.
One carriageway was closed while the Highways Agency removed three of the vehicles, causing long tail backs.
