A man in his 60s has been taken to hospital after a serious crash on Victoria Avenue in Jersey.

A white transit van was the only vehicle involved in the crash which happened about 09:50 GMT.

The driver was taken to Jersey's General Hospital and was moved to a ward to recover after receiving emergency treatment.

The eastbound carriageway was closed for nearly six hours while the scene was investigated and the van removed.

Daniel Laurens, from Jersey Fire and Rescue Service, described it as "a difficult extrication" as "every time we moved the front of the van it caused a lot of pain to the casualty".
