One person was extracted from a vehicle by fire crews from Chesterfield and Staveley, and taken to hospital with minor injuries.

A white Mitsubishi, one of the vehicles involved, was taken away from the scene.

The accident blocked three lanes and police closed the road, which was re-opened at around 9.45pm.

Firefighters made the scene safe then left it in the hands of police and the council – who attended to remove a damaged lamp post.
