Two injured women who were trapped in cars after a crash on a busy main road have now been cut out of the wreckage by fire crews.

The emergency services raced to A413 London Road, in Great Missenden, after receiving a 999 call shortly after 3pm.

Two cars were involved in the crash, near The Chiltern Hospital, which forced police to close the road.

Officers on the scene indicated one woman from each of the two cars involved was injured and both vehicles were badly damaged.

Shortly after 5.30pm, highway maintenance officers finished clearing debris off the road.

Police reopened the road and left the scene at 5.45pm. Traffic is now flowing in both directions.

One of the cars involved is understood to be a blue Peugeot 307, with "significant" damage and debris strewn across the road.

A diversion was put in place taking queuing traffic through Great Missenden via London Road and A4128 Link Road to rejoin the A413.

According to TVP Chiltern and South Bucks the accident happened near the hospital in Great Missenden and the junction of Frith Hill.
