A man has been killed and two more taken to hospital in an accident in Herefordshire.

Emergency services were called to the A49 at Hope Under Dinmore during the early hours.

A spokesman for the West Midlands Ambulance Service said they found a car had somehow left the road, overturned and caught fire.

Two men had managed to get out of the car but the third was pronounced dead at the scene.

He added a police officer and a member of the public had managed to get the man out of the vehicle but despite their efforts he was confirmed to be dead.

The two men who got out of the car, thought to be in their late teens or early 20s, were taken to hospital.

The road was closed for several hours.
