A 70-year-old woman has been seriously injured in a collision between two cars in Poole.

Dorset Police said the woman "received life threatening injuries" in the incident at about 21:00 BST on Saturday.

Broadstone Way at the junction of Beechbank Avenue was blocked off for several hours.

Dorset Fire Service said two injured women had to be removed from one car using hydraulic cutting equipment.

"Firefighters then assisted paramedics to get both casualties onto spinal boards before they were transported to hospital via land ambulance," a spokesman said.
