Two people on board a patient transport minibus were seriously injured when it collided with two cars on the M5 motorway in Worcestershire.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said one of its vehicles was involved in the crash on the northbound carriageway between junctions 6 at Worcester and 5 at Droitwich Spa, at about 17:00 GMT.

The driver and three others in the cars all suffered minor injuries.

The ambulance trust said it will co-operate with a police investigation.
