Woman jogger is killed in crash at Littleport

A woman believed to be in her 20s died this morning after she was in collision with a car on a country lane whilst out jogging in the Fens.

The car is believed to have struck a wall, left the road and rolled into a field, trapping the victim.

The driver - who is also female and believed to be in her 30s - had to be cut free from her car.

She was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital after being treated by the RAF Wyton-based Magpas Helimedix team. Her condition was described as stable.

Consultant Dr Rod Mackenzie, from Magpas, said: 'This was an extremely upsetting incident for all involved as we were unable to help one of the patients. Our condolences are with the family.

'We would like to make a plea to all road users to take care during this dangerous time. Every year, we see an increase in serious accidents when the light and clocks change.

'Please do everything you can to stay safe and look after all road users.'
