The vehicles in the crash were a Vauxhall Meriva, a Renault Scenic and a Ford Focus.

A woman in her 70s, who had been a passenger in the Meriva, had been taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge by the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance, but died of her injuries.

A man in his 80s, who was driving the Meriva was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital with life-threatening injuries by the East Anglian Air Ambulance, where his condition was described as critical but stable.

A second male who had been driving the Renault Scenic, was taken to N&N with minor injuries while a female passenger in this vehicle was uninjured.
