A man and a teenage girl have been killed in a car crash in Rutland.

The accident, involving a Ford Fiesta and Ford Transit van, happened on the A6003 Oakham Road, in Manton, just after 1730 BST.

Two passengers in the Fiesta, 17-year-old Kelly Marie Bulmer and 23-year-old James Adamson, both from Oakham, died at the scene.

The Fiesta's male driver is in a serious condition in hospital, while the van driver was not badly hurt.

Det Con Rob Lapworth said: "We know the Fiesta was travelling in the direction of Uppingham and the van was travelling in the opposite carriageway when the collision occurred.

"We would like to speak to anyone who saw either of the vehicles in the moments leading up to the collision."
