Boy seriously injured in Angus tractor collision

A seven-year-old boy was seriously injured when his grandmother's car was involved in a collision with a tractor in Angus.

The boy had to be cut free from the car after the crash on the B961 Carmyllie to Redford near Arbroath.

He was taken by ambulance to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee under police escort, where he is being treated for serious head injuries.

Two other passengers, also children, were unhurt.

The woman driver - who is understood to be the injured child's grandmother - suffered a minor neck injury.

Tayside Police said the crash between the green tractor and a blue Vauxhall Corsa happened at about 0950 BST. The 48-year-old man driving the tractor was not hurt.

Officers confirmed that the seriously injured child was a passenger in the rear of the car.

The road is currently closed while police investigate the cause of the crash.
