One woman is critically ill in hospital and another suffered serious injuries in a crash on a main route through the centre of Rochester in Kent.

Kent Police were called to A2 Corporation Street just after 0630 BST on Saturday following reports that a Honda Civic had crashed.

The force said all five occupants, who had just finished a night shift, were taken to hospital.

Three men who suffered minor injuries were later discharged.

The Chatham-bound carriageway of the A2 near Rochester Bridge was closed for several hours after the crash.

No other vehicles were involved in the incident. Kent Police have appealed for witnesses.
