A man has spine and neck injuries after being cut out of his car following a eight car collision this morning.

No on was seriously hurt during the collision which blocked the road this morning (Tuesday) at 7.20am at the Bardills Island roundabout, Long Eaton.

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: “It is an eight-car crash that doesn’t appear to be too serious but it has blocked the road.

“One person had to be cut from their car but the rest of people are just walking wounded.”

“It would appear to be a multi-vehicle shunt but no one was seriously injured.”

Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service said one male was cut out of the car and was taken to hospital with back and neck injuries.

A subsequent car fire also took place at the island and Derbyshire Police were on hand to put out the Mini - which was described as ‘well alight’ - with a hose jet and breathing apparatus.
