A young driver was last night fighting for their life in hospital after a crash in Essex.

Police are appealing for witnesses after the accident, which happened in Clapton Hall Lane, Dunmow, near Braintree, shortly before 10.45pm.

Essex Police said they were in a life-threatening condition.

No other vehicles were involved and no one else was injured.

Witnesses and anyone with information is asked to contact Stanway Roads Policing Unit on 101.
