TWO people had to be cut from their cars following a serious four-vehicle accident on the A120 earlier today.

Fire crews from Coggeshall and Braintree attended the crash at 11.50am at Coggeshall and worked alongside paramedics to cut the two casualties - who were in separate vehicles - free.

The first was freed just before 12.30 and the second at 12.45pm.

Both were taken to Colchester General Hospital by ambulance although it is not clear at this stage how serious their injuries are.
