Two people have died within hours of each other in separate car crashes on Christmas Day in Lincolnshire.

A man in his 50s was driving an Audi A6 when it crashed on Yarburgh Road in Covenham St Mary at 15:00 GMT.

About three hours later, a woman in her 70s died when the Ford Fiesta she was in was in collision with a BMW on Louth Road, North Cockerington.

Lincolnshire Police said another person from the Fiesta was injured and taken to Grimsby Hospital.

Any witnesses to either crash, or anyone with dash-cam footage, has been asked to contact the local police.
