A child was among three patients hurt in a rush-hour smash on a busy Stoke-on-Trent junction. Police and two ambulances were sent to the City Road and Victoria Road roundabout this morning following reports of a two-car crash.

Now West Midlands Ambulance Service have confirmed a man, woman and child had suffered injuries - which paramedics say were not considered serious. Motorists in the area say there were long queues on the notoriously busy City Road and Victoria Road as the emergency services dealt with the incident.

One commuter spotted a fire engine at the scene of the collision, which involved a Mercedes A-Class and a Volkswagen Tiguan. The alarm had been raised at around 8.30am.
