Two women were flown to hospital with serious injuries after a major crash on the Ashford Road this afternoon (Wednesday).
Four fire crews, police and two air ambulances were called to the A251 at around 2.20pm after a head-on collision between two cars.
An 18-year-old woman and another aged around 30 were both freed from the wreckage of their cars using hydraulic cutting equipment.
They were both taken by air ambulance to Kings College Hospital in London with injuries described by police as “serious”.
The next-of-kin have been informed.
Police are now appealing for information following the serious collision between the silver Ford Fiesta and white Peugeot 207.
Officers are asking for anyone who witnessed the collision or stopped at the scene to assist to contact the police.
