A fuel spill caused four cars to crash on a main road near Evesham.

A Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service crew from Evesham Fire Station was called to the scene at 6:38pm.

The team had been alerted to a petrol/diesel spill on the A46 at Hinton-on-the-Green.

Two of the vehicles were made safe by the fire service personnel whilst the other two were able to be driven home, a HWFRS spokesperson confirmed.

They added that there were six casualties as a result of the crash, all of whom refused medical treatment.

Last week, a huge plan to improve the road was revealed by Midlands Connect.
