A driver was taken to hospital with serious injuries after a single-vehicle collision on the A47 later refused to give a breath test.

He was driving a black Range Rover Vogue, which hit a roundabout at Thorney and landed on the other side of the junction about 25 feet away at about 6.24pm on Friday (February 21).

Emergency services attended the scene, where the driver refused to provide a specimen of breath after being taken to hospital.

Anyone with dashcam footage of the collision, or who saw the Range Rover driving prior to the collision, is urged to call police on 101 quoting ref: 402 of 21 February.
