AT LEAST 20 have been injured after a minibus overturned in a crash involving another vehicle yesterday evening.

The crash happened near Bluntisham village in Cambridgeshire at 4.51pm.

Some people have been left seriously injured, Cambridge Constabulary said.

It is believed ten ambulances, 20 firefighters, the East Anglian Air Ambulance and a hazard response team are all at the scene.

Casualties were taken to Addenbrooke's and Hinchingbrooke hospitals, a spokeswoman from the East of England Ambulance Service said.
