We received a call at 8.20am this morning (Friday 29th January) reporting a road traffic collision between Lichfield and Tamworth.

A red Audi A1 and a Mercedes van were involved in the incident on the A5 at Mile Oak, with one vehicle overturning.

Our colleagues from the ambulance service attended the scene and took one person to hospital with reported slight injuries.

The road was closed for a short while but one lane is currently open and a rolling road block is in place whilst the vehicles are recovered.
