A train has collided with a car on a level crossing in Cambridgeshire.

The accident happened at 08:00 GMT on Saturday at the Victoria Street crossing in Littleport and involved a car with two people inside.

A man was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge and the other person suffered minor injuries.

The crossing has been closed and train services suspended, with replacement buses taking passengers between Downham Market in Norfolk and Ely.
