Today, two cars collided on a busy junction at lunchtime.

The incident happened just after 1pm at the Le Chene traffic lights on Forest Road.

It appeared that a white van had exited Rue des Morts - the road up from Petit Bot - as a grey car drove west along Forest Road. Both vehicles were very badly damaged.

One person was taken to hospital as a precaution.

All three emergency services attended. Officials worked to keep traffic moving past the crash, which partially obstructed the junction, but there were still long queues in the area.
