One person has died and a female casualty was airlifted to hospital after a collision between a car and a van at Black Drove, Murrow, this morning (November 9).

The Magpas Air Ambulance helicopter crew who flew the Magpas medical team and patient were pilot Andy Figg and crew member George Phillips.

East Anglian Air Ambulance treated another patient involved in the incident.

An EEAST Ambulance Service paramedic crew, Cambridgeshire Police and the Fire and Rescue Service were also in attendance.
