We are now receiving reports that six people have been injured in a collision on the A17 between Leadenham and Brant Broughton - two of them seriously.

According to Lincolnshire Police, the incident happened just before 10.45am on the A17 Leadenham bypass and involved three vehicles but damaging five in total.

An East Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said six people are injured. Two of those are thought to be serious and have been taken to Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham by emergency services, the other four have been treated at the scene by medics.

A horse in a horse box trailer was also involved and a vet is in attendance treating the horse’s injuries, said a Lincolnshire Police spokesman.

According to the AA, eyewitnesses report the Air Ambulance has been in attendance.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area. The road will be closed for a considerable time and diversions are being put in place.

Closures are at the junction with Brant Broughton/Stragglethorpe and at the B6403 High Dike junction with Cranwell, with slow moving traffic and queues developing both ways.
