The A21 near Johns Cross has been closed in both directions following a serious collision involving two vehicles. According to reports, three occupants in one of the vehicles have suffered serious injuries and have been taken to the hospital.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 16-year-old boy, has been arrested on suspicion of a number of offences including dangerous driving, failing to stop, and aggravated vehicle taking. It is believed that the teenage driver was involved in a police chase before the collision occurred. As per standard practice in such matters, the Independent Office of Police Conduct (IOPC) has been notified of the incident.
