A toddler has been rushed to hospital with a fractured skull after a serious crash in Barningham this morning.

Police, ambulance crews, firefighters and the East Anglian Air Ambulance were sent to Bardwell Road in the village at 8.45am to reports of a single vehicle collision.

Three children – a three-year-old boy, two-year-old girl and a two-month-old boy – were in the car at the time alongside two adults.

Paramedics treated the two-year-old girl and one of the adults, a man, at the scene before taking them both to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, a police spokesman said.

The toddler had a head injury while the man is thought to have suffered a broken finger.
