The air ambulance has been called to a busy road which has been closed after two cars and a transit van crashed.

Biddenden Road in Headcorn has now been re-opened after being shut since shortly after the incident which took place at 7.50am near The Old Dairy.

One person has been airlifted to St George's Hospital in London while a further two, including a woman with a broken collar bone and leg injuries, have been taken to William Harvey hospital in Ashford by road.

Councillor Martin Round said: “Traffic is queuing all the way back to Sutton Valence, everything is at a complete standstill.

“There are more vehicles here with blue lights on than I have ever seen.

“I’m leading a campaign to improve the roads because people are getting sick to death of the number of accidents on the A274.

“Headcorn is in a state of chaos at the moment and hopefully we will get it sorted soon.”
