Emergency services were called to the scene at around 11.30pm with firefighters helping to free the mother driving the Vauxhall, who was then taken to hospital by paramedics.

The father and two children escaped unharmed.

The female driver of the Suzuki also escaped uninjured and has been bailed until December 19.
