Kent Fire and Rescue Service says its crews used battery-operated equipment to remove a door from one of the cars to create space for paramedics to assess one casualty inside the vehicle.

The crash happened at about 11.40am.

A spokesman for Kent Police said: "Officers attended along with fire and ambulance crews. The road was temporarily closed until 3.20pm."

A spokesman for South East Coast Ambulance Service said: "Ambulance crews attended the scene and three patients were taken to hospital after being assessed and treated at the scene."
