A car has come off the road and crashed into flats in the centre of Grantham.

Emergency services are currently on scene at the Westgate/Dysart Road one-way system, where the car crashed into Great Northern Court just after 10.10am this morning (Monday).

A police spokesman said injuries to the man driving the car are not yet known. There are no reports of injuries to people in the flats hit.

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue is on scene following reports of a gas leak. Residents of the flats have not been evacuated.

Nearby roads are closed and cordoned off while the incident is ongoing. Diversions are in place but motorists are advised to avoid the centre of Grantham as main roads are gridlocked.
